This program is unlike any other fraud course you may have taken. Discover a different approach to studying fraud. Identify the disconnect between what we (the accountants) and what they (the fraudsters) do.

CPAs need to be able to identify where fraud will most likely occur. In today's litigious society, the detection of fraud is not limited to auditors. Anyone who becomes aware of a possible fraudulent situation ignores the implications at their peril.

Materials are provided as an ebook.

Objectives:

  • Identify major fraud risks.
  • Recognize how to improve fraud detection skills.
  • Compare and contrast the effectiveness of what we do versus the findings of the Report to the Nations
  • Determine how to differentiate between small- and large-company fraud risks.
  • Recognize prevention versus detection and the related costs and benefits.

Major Subjects:

  • How and why people commit fraud
  • The disconnect between what we do and what they (the fraudsters) do
  • The Report to the Nations of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners
  • What we can do better
