Course Level: Basic
Meet Janet, Bill and Kelly. They all have something in common: Janet has worked for over 15 years as a senior finance official for a small municipality; Bill has worked for the past five years as purchasing manager for a closely held manufacturing company with about 1,000 employees; Kelly worked for ten years in the accounting office of a construction company. What do these three have in common? They all got greedy and then got caught, with losses into six figures between them. Learn how these perpetrators developed and executed their fraud, how they were individually able to conceal their crime, how it finally unraveled and the ultimate outcome of each.
Case studies such as these serve as excellent examples of the entire fraud process from the perpetrators’ to the fraud investigators’ different perspectives. They illustrate how simple business processes and internal controls can contribute to the development and execution of a fraud and how simple procedures can place the necessary barriers to deter most frauds.
What you will learn:
How, what and why employees steal
How to follow the money
How an organization's growth can outpace implementation of stronger internal controls to accommodate the growth
