Illustration of fraud triangle in a comedy movie

leave a comment »

I have a post on my other blog explaining that a 1968 movie, The Producers, gives a great illustration of the fraud triangle.

First opportunity, then motivation, followed by rationalization. Then a full-steam-ahead fraud.

Of course, in any good melodrama the bad guys get caught in the end. The scammers go to prison.

… Where they commit the fraud again.

Check out my post, Fraud triangle illustrated in a movie.
