Here’s Your Chance to Hear Andrew Fastow’s Story in Andrew Fastow’s Own Words

With apologies to Crazy Eddie's Sam Antar, Andrew Fastow might be the most notorious CFO in the history of financial reporting fiction. Mr. Fastow, as you're probably aware, was the Chief off-balance sheet-SPE web-builder at Enron. In other words, he's one of the guys you should probably be thanking for your jobs.

Fastow was released from prison in December 2011 and since his release has gone on record about some of the decisions he made since things didn't really turn out so well for anyone connected to Enron. Except for maybe bankruptcy lawyers.

Anyway, you should know that Fastow will be one of the keynote speakers at the ACFE's annual conference in Las Vegas later this year. (Don't worry, he's not be compensated for his appearance.)

So if you consider yourself a connaisseur of fraud history (or want to be one), this might be worth your while. It probably won't be as entertaining as playing Crazy Eddie commercials on a loop, but it's something.
