The Salad Oil King. Rip-off #32.
How to Cheat School Children out of a Free Lunch.

It was a simple, despicable, immoral elegant scheme. Alfonso Alfonso” Gravenese, AKA The Salad Oil King, paid off government officials to get awarded contracts to provide underprivileged kids with a balanced free lunch.

Then to reimburse himself for the bribes and make a crapload of “bonus” profits, Fonso reduced his operating costs by shortchanging the amount of meat that was supposed to be in each kid’s lunch tray.

Every employee in his company that participated in the scheme or kept their mouth shut also received a bonus. In five years, he had more than $200 million in various bank accounts across America.

The Salad Oil King is the remarkable story—based on a true story—of how a streetwise, unscrupulous high school dropout eventually bilked the American government out of $13 billion before anyone even noticed. It is a classic American crime story of greed gone mad.
