|Scott Hilsen is a lawyer and a Certified Fraud Examiner in Atlanta, Georgia. Fraudulent Intention$ is a novel based on the true story of a corporate deal gone bad and the internal investigation that exposed a shocking online fraud.
When a conservative bank delves into the ethereal world of internet commerce, it gets entangled in a web of deceit, organized crime, and online adult entertainment. For SouthPoint Bank, its purchase of Internet Connections, or ICon, was a risky way to boost its stock price, but the deal was rushed so that the power hungry Chairman of SouthPoint could stay in power. For ICon, being acquired by SouthPoint was its last chance to cash in on the Internet boom, but the flashy President of ICon was looking for more than money – he needed a way to escape a secret that ICon had been concealing through a conspiracy of fraud.
After an insider’s tip, SouthPoint launched a surprise internal investigation of ICon. When the investigators found a connection between ICon and the Russian Mafia, the investigation suddenly turned into a dangerous race against the clock to expose the fraud and to save SouthPoint from financial ruin. From Andorra in the Pyrenees Mountains to Antigua in the Caribbean Sea, Fraudulent Intention$ twists and turns around the shadowy world of white collar crime.
