Well it appears the con man was conned. His personal assistant got him and his wife for millions of dollars and is on the run. Some of what the money was spent on is mentioned in the article.

1st world rich people problems I guess. They certainly won't be in the poor house over this.

    How complacent could this guy be if he didn't even see his personal assistant spending beyond his means?

    Exactly. And, who would be stupid enough to give someone with a record access to their bank accounts.

    Exactly. And, who would be stupid enough to give someone with a record access to their bank accounts.

    Depends on the record.  There are those out there with ivy league educations and a felony for marijuana that are perfectly trustworthy for those matters, and then there are those that have no record and are perfectly qualified for these matters and they will find a way to legally rob you blind.  It is a matter of giving access to a qualified individual while still controlling the situation.  In this scenario, it seems that keeping track of their money was too burdensome. But forget a felony, I have a cousin that was an outstanding lawyer and he was set up by the police when he was drinking alcohol with them and they persuaded him that he would be fine to drive and when he left, one of their on-duty buddies arrested him and now he cannot practice law anywhere in the country.  It is too easy to trust others and become a victim, having certain felony offenses fail to represent that person's morals.  The 2008 movie Felon is a perfect example of this which is based on a true story.

    Yes, but I was referring to his record (not just any record) of specifically theft and forgery prior to that job. Unless the employer didn't do their homework. And, to constantly see money go missing without asking questions and do nothing about it was pretty naive.
