Again, fraud has occurred at a major Catholic institution. The last high profile cases were in Fairfield County, Connecticut in the towns of Greenwich and Darien. The latest case is in the Archdiocese of New York.
As THE NEW YORK TIMES reports, Anita Collins, a long-time employee in the Archdiocese's finance office, is accused of a $1 million fraud. Although she had had legal problems before being hired, the Archdiocese didn't know that because it hadn't run a background check.
Institutions have to create bullet-proof systems to prevent fraud and, if it does happen, to pick it up quickly.
