Show Notes

Retired F.B.I  Special Agent Jerri Williams joins us for today's show!

Jerri Williams served 26 years as a Special Agent with the FBI.
Jerri takes us on her journey from being a juvenile probation agent to becoming a special agent in the FBI. Jerri also reveals the selection and testing process she went through to become a special agent in the FBI.

Jerri gives us a behind-the-scenes peek into the F.B.I. and how they solve crimes.  Jerri also debunks common tropes associated with the F.B.I.

During most of her Bureau career, she worked major economic fraud investigations and was amazed at the schemes and deceptions con-artist and corrupt corporate and public officials would devise to steal other people’s money.

During her FBI career, Jerri investigated all types of crimes including bank robberies, and later she specialized in cases targeting major economic crime and corruption. Her investigation of a $350 million Ponzi scheme perpetrated against unsuspecting nonprofit organizations, high profiled philanthropists, and beneficiary donors resulted in a 12-year prison sentence and multiple forfeitures.

Toward the end of her federal law enforcement career, Jerri was appointed as the spokesperson for the Philadelphia Division of the FBI, taking on the responsibility of educating and informing the media and public about the Bureau.

Jerri also discusses her post-retirement move to becoming a successful indie author, podcaster, and Hollywood T.V. and film consultant.
