Jerri Williams-

Jerri Williams served 26 years as a Special Agent with the FBI. She often jokes that she is currently reliving her glory days by writing crime fiction and hosting a true crime podcast. During her career, she specialized in cases targeting major economic crime. Her investigation of a $350 million Ponzi scheme perpetrated against unsuspecting nonprofit organizations, high profiled philanthropists and beneficiary donors  resulted in a 12 year prison sentence and multiple forfeitures; the case she conducted on an international advance fee scam resulted in a 14 year prison sentence and the forfeiture of the subject’s residence; and her major investigation of  business to business telemarketing fraud, which included a long-term undercover operation, resulted in 16 search warrants, 25 convictions and numerous multi-year prison terms. Jerri received numerous awards throughout her career including three United States Attorney Awards for Distinguished Service for her work on the cases noted. Being interviewed and appearing on CNBC’s American Greed in the episode—Confessions of a Con Man—was a highlight of Jerri’s career.

Toward the end of her FBI career, Jerri was appointed as the spokesperson for the Philadelphia Division of the FBI, taking on the responsibility of educating and informing the public about the Bureau. This role often placed her in the spotlight in front of the local news media. She also made appearances on the CBS Morning Show and The History Channel’s “Save Our History” program.

Post FBI retirement, Jerri served as the spokesperson and Director of Media Relations for SEPTA, Philadelphia’s public transportation provider. In this role, she frequently addressed the media and the public on camera, radio and in print about newsworthy events. That meant on any given day, she was tasked with explaining the complexities of the Authority’s budget, the odd behavior of a rider whose actions were captured on surveillance cameras and required police response, or emceeing a celebration marking the end of a major transit improvement project.

Now that Jerri has started her third career as an author and podcaster, her law enforcement encounters with scams and schemers provides a broad platform from which she crafts and promotes her creative projects. Her debut novel—Pay to Play—features a female FBI agent investigating corruption in the Philadelphia strip club industry is available at Amazon.com. Jerri is also the producer and host of a popular podcast—FBI Retired Case File Review—where she interviews retired FBI agents about their careers and high-profiled cases and discusses the FBI as portrayed in books, TV and movies.
