>The place where fraudsters always go wrong is what they spend the cash on. If I were so inclined to nick £170k from my employer, and actually managed it, the last thing I would spunk it on is hookers and blow - that's just asking to get caught.
Yes but what do you do with that money instead to keep a low profile. You can't really put it into a bank account without providing documentation as to where that money came from, you can't have it paid out to you in cash little by little and then travel abroad with a bag full of banknotes, for reasons including that customs will certainly not just let you enter a foreign country with that kind of money in cash without asking questions, and you also can't invest it in property, because you will also have to tell authorities where your £175K came from.
Blowing it all on drugs and hookers, and a few consumer goods, is actually the only way that you will get your money's worth out of it. And if you do it right, it's actually one of the best ways to keep a low profile and not let everybody know that you nicked a six-figure sum from somewhere.
