By Dr. Joseph T. Wells, CFE, CPA
Previously Occupational Fraud and Abuse, this revised and updated book by Joseph T. Wells and the ACFE proves it is much more cost effective to prevent fraud than to punish it.
In the Corporate Fraud Handbook, 3rd Edition, Wells explores the three main categories of occupational fraud and abuse - asset misappropriation, corruption, and fraudulent statements - and identifies and classifies thirteen separate schemes. Wells also provides an overview of the complex social factors that go into creating an occupational offender, exploring why people do things, and for what reasons. Understanding why employees engage in this behavior is the key to creating ways to prevent it.
The Corporate Fraud Handbook features:
Case studies revealing clear insights into the mind of the fraudulent employee
Statistics from the ACFE’s 2010 Report to the Nations showing the average cost and prevalence for each method of fraud
Observations and conclusions in each chapter to guide readers through devising prevention and detection strategies
A classification system explaining the various schemes used by offending executives, owners, managers, and employees
