Tax accountant who stole nearly $1.5m from clients and tax office to fund gambling addiction jailed

This article about James Burrows is incredibly disheartening to read. It is incredibly sad to think that Burrows was able to defraud his clients out of hundreds of thousands of dollars. It’s a reminder of how important it is to be wary of those who we trust with our finances. No one should have to worry that their financial advisor is going to take advantage of them like this.

It is also a reminder that fraud should not be taken lightly. The court was right to hand down a sentence that reflects the severity of the crime. Burrows should be held accountable for his actions and serve his sentence. Hopefully, this serves as a lesson to others who may be tempted to commit fraud.
