Theme Park Employee Paid Herself, Family over $100K in Fraudulent Refunds

A Disney employee tasked with issuing refunds to unhappy customers is accused of misdirecting more than $100,000 into her and her friends’ bank accounts. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) said Jennifer Alejandra Insuasti, 32, of Kissimmee, is charged with one count of grand theft of $100,000 or more. She turned herself in on Monday in Osceola County.

Insuasti worked as a Guest Experience Services Coordinator at Disney. As part of her job, she would field complaints from unhappy guests and then offer them refunds, free tickets or free resort stays to resolve the issue. Investigators said Insuasti would directly issue refund money into her own bank account, or bank accounts belonging to her friends and family.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement said Disney handed over records showing 41 fraudulent debit or credit card refunds and four fraudulent check refunds. Guests still received their refunds, but money was stolen directly from her former employer.

Are you on top of employee fraud?

When it comes to types of fraud, we’re all familiar with insurance fraud, tax fraud and even identity theft but what about employee fraud?

According to a 2020 survey undertaken by NatWest, fraud costs UK business more than £190million a year. More disturbingly, about 40% of that figure relates to employee fraud. Businesses of all sizes are vulnerable to employee fraud and it’s estimated two thirds of employee fraud is committed by workers with at least 5 years’ service with one in five fraudsters having over 10 years' service.

Once recruited there is a duty of mutual trust and confidence implied into the contract of employment, this includes a duty of trust placed on the employee that they will not involve themselves in fraudulent activity in the workplace. Nevertheless, sadly it is common for employees committing fraud to not even think they are doing anything illegal.

Why does employee fraud happen?

US criminologist Donald R Cressey developed the 'Fraud Triangle' framework for understanding the circumstances behind the temptation for employees to commit fraud.

There are three necessary conditions:

  1. pressure/motivation (an emotion felt by the employee);

  2. opportunity (lack of internal controls); and

  3. rationalisation (the ability to justify one’s actions).
