How Not to Make Money

3.0 rating

Chia Teck Leng
The finance manager who embezzled $117 million to become the world's no. 2 casino high-roller.

Chong Seah Wee
The bank officer who forged money transfers to win $10 million in the four-digit lottery.

Nick Leeson
The trader who made international news for single-handedly bringing down Britain's oldest merchant bank.

These and other criminals were brought to justice when their paths crossed with the dedicated "white-collar crime-busters" of the Commercial Affairs Department (CAD) of the Singapore Police Force.

The ten landmark cases featured in this book capture highlights of the agency's 20-year history since 1984. They are testimony to the CAD's untiring efforts to protect Singapore's reputation as an international financial centre. At the same time, the cases uncover intriguing insights into the criminal psyche, culled from extensive interviews with top CAD investigators, as well as fresh interviews with four criminals serving time in Changi Prison. Together, these inside stories put together a revealing picture of how not to make money by committing commercial crime.
