According to Kreitner & Kinicki (2013), organizations that foster a pressure-cooker atmosphere for results, unwittingly allows managers to set the stage for unethical shortcuts by employees who seek to please the boss and protect their jobs. Within the military, this is evident by the high rewards for accomplishing goals and then the punishment for not obtaining them. When an ethical lapse occurs it impacts the organizational culture. The organizational culture is a system of shared assumptions, values and beliefs that governs how people behave in organizations.

Scammers are always an issue and there are a lot of dishonest people out there trying to take advantage of those that are unaware.
