The firstmemory that Amber has about financial crime is hearing her father and a friendof the family discussing the dilemma faced by a local union that had fallen underthe influence of an organized crime group. Pension monies had allegedly beendeferred into investments that benefitted the crime organization, but not theunion membership. Many discussions with her father followed on the structuresthat could allow a criminal organization to circumvent the controls in anestablished organization for their own purposes without suffering anyconsequences. It was all very confusing and fascinating for a ten year old.While her confusion has faded, her fascination never has. Amber is passionateabout ethical and legal compliance.
