It is sometimes unbelievable the risks that some big business owners or corporate leaders will take to gain profits.
Back in 2001, a big American construction company was handed down a grand jury indictment for paying off other companies to give high bids so his company would win the bid, which meant big bucks for them.
It was a conspiracy that lasted many years. The project was supposed to be done by competitive bidding. Laws were no doubt broken, so an indictment was the right thing to do.
Some of the companies involved in the conspiracy pleaded guilty and paid a steep fine. These companies had been able to keep all this fraud a secret until one of the employees noticed something suspicious and notified the Justice Department. Then the big indictment began.
