Diary of a Bad, Bad Bookkeeper (Day 112) – Theft by Signature Stamp

Dear Diary,

Today the boss went on vacation and guess what he gave me…the Signature Stamp.  I couldn’t believe it when he handed it to me.  I think my smile was from ear-to-ear.  Doesn’t he realize how stupid it is to give me the signature stamp?

“Are you sure you want to give this to me?” I asked all innocent like.  In the back of my mind, I was already calculating how much money I might be able to get now that I had this new stamp.

“Of course.  I trust you,” he told me with an amused little smirk.

That smirk told me

    Heads up y’all! You CAN prove this kind of fraud – all of these activities will be time-tracked – they will obviously have taken place during the time the boss was gone, and after the bookkeeper received the signature. The credit reporting companies will be receiving delinquency reports, which are inevitable – and they’ll contact the business owner, and he will begin an investigation. Hopefully he has solid business insurance!
    Sad to say, though, that his insurance will not cover all of this; there’s a lot of red tape and it takes time, but they will investigate as well.
    I am speaking from experience – I recently had to unravel the trail of a very bad, bad bookkeeper, and she is looking at some very serious jail time, not to mention restitution… so, for all of you considering this a how-to manual, remember – a good bookkeeper coming in behind you can follow your trail and figure you out pretty quick – and, as they say on my favorite radio show, “crooks get busted”!!!

  3. This could be one of the most authoritative words I ever learned in a long time, I’m uttering about this part of your article “… out what that bad bookkeeper did.

    @Karen…I agree. I was the one who caught an admin doing just that. She was fired immediately, convicted, spent 60 days in the county jail and is still repaying the debt to this day. She was just released from probation in January. I do have to say though, this blog is an eye-opener for alot of people. Theft is one of my areas of expertise and I offer reviews of a potential client’s books as part of my services.
