Help Nail Fraudsters - Join The FBI Citizens Academy

Mon, Oct 20, 2008


Calculated Risk (one of the finance blogs I read regularly) just posted an article from the NY Times which discusses how the FBI’s resources are stretched too thin and as a result, they don’t have the manpower to handle the glut of financial and whitecollar fraud cases plaguing our financial markets.

In response to this shameful realization and having personal experience in handling a lot of fraud matters (counterfeits, cc fraud, identity theft, wire fraud, etc.) I’m considering applying to the FBI Citizens Academy…and I think YOU should too.

The Citizens Academy is an FBI outreach program that gives specialists in varying fields (finance, engineering, etc.) the ability to assist the FBI in many of their exciting endevours. There is training over the course of a few months, then just like when 24’s Jack Bauer gets the call from CTU to return to active-duty, you might be sitting at home one evening watching Lost, when you are called into action.

This is obviously pro-bono work. However, if you want to feel like a financial vigilante, get your eyes on some interesting cases AND you have a squeaky clean record, you should contact your local FBI office and apply.

Who knows, they might even let you pack heat…I wish.
