Corporate Espionage Plot Foiled by Salesman


Andy Parsons, a salesman for Vector Networks, never expected to get a call from a disgruntled technician working for a competitor, offering to sell him the rival's entire database.

But when he did, he did the right thing: he called the company and let them know. The next thing he knew, he was involved in an FBI sting operation to foil corporate espionage, which costs U.S. companies alone about $378m a year.

"I believe you have to stand up to this sort of thing and if fewer people turned away we could have a much better society," Parsons said. The sting went off without a hitch, and the criminal was taken into custody.
