OSWEGO, NY – On Thursday, Barry Thompson spoke to the Oswego Sunrise Rotary.
Thompson, CRCM, is the managing partner with Thompson Consulting Group, located in Oswego.
He is a retired banker, consultant, writer and internationally recognized speaker with thirty years of service in the financial institution industry.
He has made presentations in Brussels, Belgium, to European bankers on international fraud; at the United Nations on identity theft and to Japanese bankers on bank security.
He has investigated various criminal incidents against financial instructions including embezzlement, identity fraud and check kiting.
Thompson entertained the Rotarians with stories of scammers’ scams and less than brilliant bank robbers – robbers who used their own checks as notes to rob banks and robbers disguised as a tree.
