Contrary to conventional wisdom, most embezzlers are not "serial embezzlers" who are successfully hired after stealing from others. Rather, over 85% of the embezzlement we investigate is committed by long-term employees with no criminal record or adverse work history. So while it’s important to background check potential hires, it’s far from the perfect antidote for embezzlement since the greater danger lies with existing employees with no prior problems.
