"Honey, did you notice the name of our new oil company?"
I wonder how some crooks think they're going to get away with their crimes. A guy in Wisconsin who owned a fuel company decided that after pumping fuel into his customer's fuel tanks, he would save himself money by pumping some of the fuel out again, right back into his truck.
Yes, those stupid customers are never conscious of how much they're paying for things.
And, besides shorting his customers, he also falsified invoices. Well of course he did. He obviously was not a very accomplished fraudster. How much could he possibly have stolen? And once he was caught, how could he plausibly deny he was doing it?
He couldn't. John Rassbach, formerly of Rassbach Oil, was sentenced to 4 years in jail.
