​HOW TO DISAPPEAR AND CHANGE YOUR IDENTITY
​When I was seven years old, my name and date of birth were changed. This influenced me to become become skilled in background research and identity-related issues.  I have interviewed identity fraudsters and reverse-engineered their crimes.  I use these skills to help victims of identity theft, domestic violence and stalking.  This seminar is only offered to law enforcement and Certified Fraud Examiners.

SYNTHETIC IDENTITY THEFT, RANSOMWARE & DATA BREACH
This is one of Greg's most popular courses.  An insurance agent stole 3,000 Identities of Hamilton County residents. Greg track this fraudster from youth, to the fraud, to discovery, to prison and his post-prison life. Greg interviewed the fraudster while in prison, after his release from prison, his victims, the law enforcement officers that tracked him down, and his former wife.  From this case study and the latest information, learn how to protect you and your business from financial identity theft and the latest - synthetic identity theft.

EMBEZZLEMENT AND RISK ASSESSMENT
This class is designed for very small businesses including, dental practices, veterinarians, and optometrists. These organizations typically have fewer than a dozen employees and are frequent victims of embezzlement. Well over half of small medical-related businesses are victims of embezzlement. Greg uncovered his first embezzler in 1982. Subsequently, he has investigated many embezzlers, is familiar with very small business accounting systems, fraudster embezzlement techniques, and fraud countermeasures.

SUNDAY SCHOOL
Classes are, in part, based on my interest in Biblical archaeology and ancient history, I teache church Sunday School short courses four to six weeks including "Bible Inconsistencies & Contradictions - A Forensic Analysis." I am a class leader at St Luke's Methodist Church in Indianapolis. For a list of his other Sunday School topics, contact me.
