Sam Antar Talks Fraud, Greed, Corruption Nov. 17 at VSU

VALDOSTA — Sam Antar, convicted felon turned forensic accountant, will talk fraud, greed, corruption, how not to be a victim, and more at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 17, in Valdosta State University’s Health Sciences and Business Administration Building Auditorium. This event is free of charge and open to the public.

“Sam Antar is a convicted felon and a former certified public accountant,” according to his website at “As the chief financial officer of Crazy Eddie, he helped mastermind one of the largest securities frauds uncovered during the 1980s.

“Today, Sam Antar is a forensic accountant. His primary work focuses on investigating cases involving securities fraud for law firms, research firms, hedge funds, and other clients. He advises law enforcement agencies and professionals about white-collar crime and trains them to catch the crooks.”
