All the Queen’s Horses

On February 14, 2013, Rita Crundwell, former comptroller for the city of Dixon, IL was sentenced to 19½ years in prison for stealing more than $53 million from Dixon. Crundwell’s crime went on record as the largest municipal fraud in U.S. history. Just as shocking as the amount stolen from this small Illinois town, was the fact that Crundwell engaged in her scheme to pillage Dixon for 20 years before being discovered. 

Crundwell’s fraud shines an unflattering spotlight on the accounting profession and the role of the audit. The relevance of the audit has been in question since the uncovering of massive corporate frauds dating back to Worldcom and Enron. Subsequent to Crundwell’s conviction, the city of Dixon sued its auditors, accountants and bank, settling their claim against them for $40 million.

After viewing the video and reviewing the related resources, please submit a 3-4 paragraph (600 words) initial post, addressing the following:

  1. Describe the fraud scheme committed by Rita Crundwell, including how she concealed the fraud.
  2. How did Rita Crundwell steal over $37,000 each day from a town with an annual budget of around $6 million? 
  3. Discuss the application of the fraud triangle and other fraud theories we have covered as they apply to this case study.
  4. How could this fraud have been prevented?  In your discussion, be sure to explain the controls that were missing at City Hall.
  5. How could such embezzlement go undetected in annual audits by two independent accounting firms and in annual audit reviews by state regulators? How was this fraud continued for so many years?  What red flags did the auditors miss? 
  6. How did residents not become suspicious of Crundwell’s extravagant wealth and frivolous spending? 
  7. How was the fraud finally detected?  Explain the legal side of the case.
