* ''Film/DeepRising'': Finnigan eventually figures out that Hanover was working with someone on the cruise liner for the planned heist that never materialized. That person turns out to be Canton (the ship's owner), who was responsible for sabotaging the ship's systems before the monster happened to show up. His motive was to sink the ship so he could reap the insurance money since they were actually operating at a loss. This revelation infuriates the Captain, since it's entirely Canton's fault that they couldn't get out a distress signal.

* Subverted and then played straight in ''Film/TheTown''. The robbery at Claire's bank did not involve an employee accomplice but the cops think that there might have been one. When Claire quits her job, it raises red flags and when her relationship with Doug is discovered, she is accused of being that accomplice even though the audience knows she is innocent. The later robbery at Fenway Park involves an inside man, a Fenway employee who owes Fergie a lot of money and hopes to wipe out his debt by providing the robbers with access to the money room.

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'', Edwinna Elbert, Stewardess of the Ald-Ruhn Mages Guild Hall, will give you a quest to [[GottaHaveItGonnaStealIt steal a rare book]] from a fellow member of the Guild.

Being a prominent member of the Guild yourself at this point in the quest line will help you avoid any suspicion.

* On ''Series/PersonOfInterest'' Reese and Finch are trying to save a Number who is a security guard working for an armored truck company. They find out that he is about to guard a very valuable platinum shipment and they suspect that the shipment will be attacked by robbers who are likely to kill the guards. What they fail to consider is that the robbery is actually an inside job and the Number is the mastermind behind it (while many robberies are inside jobs, they seldom involve premeditated murder, the only crime the Machine detects).

* ''Series/TheEqualizer''. Robert [=McCall=] is protecting a witness being harassed by the ex-con he testified against.

When the robber was caught, he identified him in a line-up because he was afraid the police would discover his own complicity.
