Famous Canadian Theft Cases And International Theft By: Steven Lee Facts About Identity Theft in Canada Fraud Another type of theft that refers to when a person is cheating or tricking someone. Stealing Robbery Joy Riding Breaking and Entering Occurs when a person breaks into a place for the purpose of committing an indictable offence. Related to theft only if the person takes something and not if they are seeking shelter from a storm. Identity Theft The fastest growing type of theft. It's the fraudulent act of acquiring another person private identifying information. Usually this is for financial gain. Many different types of identity theft have been created and are being used everyday. It has become such a problem that there is know insurance protecting from identity theft. It can be done many different ways although the use of credit information is the most popular way of doing it, even with all the new technology trying to stop it. - Many different methods of identity theft can range from people looking through a dumpster for a piece of information to very elaborate schemes that can affect a large amount of people.
- 1 in 6 Canadians have been a victim of identity theft by 2010. Half of these cases were on credit cards.
- Combined the victims have spent more than 20 million hours and 150 million dollars trying to resolve their problems.
- 75% said their greatest concern would be not knowing who has their personal information.
- Most of these people were also worried if they would be at risk again.
- The average Canadian victim lost about $650. The Flying Bandit His name is Ken Leishman. One of the most famous robbers in Canada has ever seen and he has the biggest gold heist in Canadian history, but he is most famous for always being a peaceful robber as he never used a weapon (but owned one though) and never hurt anyone to get out of a situation. On March 1 1966, He robbed the Winnipeg National Airport of $400,000 of solid gold bars. All he did was forge some documents, rented some Air Canada uniforms, grabbed a few buddies and just went to the airport, got the gold and just left. Nobody suspected a thing at the time. Although a time later, he was caught. He got the nickname the flying bandit because his getaway vehicle was almost always an airplane. Once he had the gold in his possession he took off in a plane that he had hot wired earlier Conrad Black You may have heard of him in the news. His case is one of, if not the most famous fraud case in Canadian History. He was a CEO of the third largest newspaper company in the world. When you're in that position, any little bad thing that you do can be noticed easily by someone, especially if they don't like you. That exactly what happened to him. Someone called him on the things he was doing; which only happened to be five counts of mail fraud, four counts of wire fraud, one count of racketeering, one count of obstruction of justice, two counts of tax fraud. Which if you are found guilty of all those can land a guy in jail for 90 years. To do all those things Conrad took a total of $60,000,000 for himself tax free from the companies share holders. Conrad was already rich without that money and hired some of the best lawyers and got off most of those charges and only got sentenced for 6.5 years and was only in prison for 28 months. Identity Theft Record PlayStation Network Sony's PlayStation Network Experienced the largest identity theft scams in history, effecting just over 77 million people. Every user of the Networks personal information was stolen and could be seen by the hackers. The attack occurred from April 17 2011 to April 19 2011. This surpassed the previous record for most people affected by identity theft of 45 million in the TJX hack in 2007. The Network was out for a total of 24 days which caused severe problems for Sony. The main thing that really hurt the reputation of Sony was waiting for a week to tell people what happened to the servers (instead of just claiming that they were down for maintenance), and that all their personal information was at risk. It is still unclear the number of people that actually lost anything from this as there was too many people to keep track of who lost what. A surprise to everyone though was that the hackers never used anybodies credit card information. This was the biggest relief to Sony as they granted a 1 million (US) dollar credit card theft insurance to every user in the Network. The Ponzi King AKA Bernard Madoff. In March 2009, Madoff pleaded guilty to 11 federal felonies and admitted to turning his major wealth management business into a massive ponzi scheme that defrauded thousands of investors of 50 billion dollars. Most ponzi schemes can only last about one year, but his last 20. He had an investment company where they guaranteed impossible return rates of 10% every year (to give return rates that high to every investor is about as probable a baseball player batting a .964 average over a season). He would never get the returns back that high, so he would simply give back 10% of the original money each year to each client. When each client money ran out though that becomes a problem, especially if you have been taking some. To fix this he would simply get another investor's money, and use it to pay off the money owing to the last person. Once that person's money was gone, he just got another person to pay back the last.
