White collar crimes are making headlines more than ever. The Department of Justice reports more than 400 white collar crime prosecutions each month in the United States. These prosecutions cost individuals and businesses billions of dollars each year. Jason Chez should know. He served 3 years in Federal Prison for fraud associated with a medical products business he ran. Jason was caught when his partner decided to blow the whistle. He lost his company, and jeopardized his wife and children's future. As Jason headed to prison, he was frightened. Everyone had advice, but none of it described the actual experience and hardship that Jason brought on himself. After serving his time and paying restitution, Jason knew he needed to help change things. That's why he founded Chez Compliance and Advocacy Group. The company coaches white collar criminals and their families before heading to prison and with the aftermath. But even more important …. Jason now goes into companies and speaks with workers about greed and “keeping their collars clean” to help prevent people from committing white collar crimes in the first place.
