CNBC'S "AMERICAN GREED: 9/11 FRAUD"

CNBC's "American Greed: 9/11 Fraud" examines the illegal lengths people will go to steal money in times of a national tragedy.

When Jamie Amoroso's husband, a Port Authority officer, is killed on 9/11 her life is drastically changed. A trusted family friend and broker uses her friendship to create a joint account without Amoroso's knowledge and forges her signature on wire transfers, stealing more than $248,000 from this young widow. Pennsylvania contractor, Thomas Cousar, defrauds the U.S. government by overcharging $800,000 for work done by his company in rebuilding the Pentagon after the attacks. Conman Patric Henn lies about a life partner lost in the twin towers and receives $68,000 from the American Red Cross. His efforts to collect additional money are thwarted when agencies cannot find any record of his partner's death or even existence.
