Chicago, IL | March 11, 2019                                                       

This course is held in conjunction with the 2-day ACFE seminar, Conducting Internal Investigations. Register for both courses to SAVE an additional $100! 

Once a fraud scandal goes public, the “what, when, where and how” become a matter of public record. But what about the “why”? What drives these individuals to lie, cheat and swindle? Understanding the path a fraudster takes from employee to criminal can provide valuable insight that can help strengthen your anti-fraud initiatives and make your fraud examinations more successful.  

Take a fascinating look inside the mind of a fraudster during this 1-day ACFE course.  Through discussions of human behavior, video interviews with convicted fraudsters and interactive problem-solving, you will gain a deeper understanding of motivations and personality traits common to many fraudsters.
