a story of a cyberheist continues…
When Karun entered the IT floor, he found not only Veronica, but her entire staff waiting for him in the floor conference room.
“Hello Karun,” said Veronica. “We have been hard at work to see what happened to the Parker account and wanted to let you know what we have found.”
“Tina Parker called our staff 28 days ago at 8:15 in the morning to report a missing sum of $983,741.82. William Burrough asked her our standard series of introductory questions regarding her account before handing the issue over to our security experts in customer service.”
“As usual, we ran a check to make sure she hadn’t opened herself up to theft. It turns out Ms. Parker is a very private person. She never uses her debit card, but instead prefers to use cash. The only time she engages in electronic transfer of funds is through William.”
“And it seems that, when we went back and checked the records, Mr. Burrough was the only person whose login credentials had been used to access the account.”
Karun’s eyes widened, but only slightly. “Does that mean what I would assume it to mean?”
Veronica nodded sadly. “The only conclusion we could come to was that Mr. Burrough was liable for the heist.”
Karun rubbed his eyes.
“Very well. Let’s contact HR and get in touch with his manager first thing in the morning and let her know what happened. We will let Mr. Burrough know first thing Friday morning.”
“What will happen to him?” asked Veronica.
“Your investigation has indicated he is guilty,” said Karun. “He has to be suspended.”
