Bribery & Corruption
By: Neil Harrison ~ 5/18/2017

Most bribery and corruption schemes begin with gifts and favors.

Commonly encountered items include: Wine and liquor (consumables), Clothes and jewelry for the recipient or spouse, etc.

Other items or services could be;
- Sexual favors
- Lavish entertainment
- Paid vacations or 'business trips'
- Free transportation on corporate jets
- Free use of resort facilities
- Gifts of the briber’s inventory or services, such as construction of home improvements by a contractor, etc.

Remember, these types of 'unexpected' gifts to a spouse can also be indicators of guilt.
