The following is a compilation of press releases published by the ACFE.
Hundreds of organizations, such as Walmart, Microsoft and Nationwide, have pledged their support to spread fraud awareness during International Fraud Awareness Week (Fraud Week), November 17-23, 2019. Nearly 550 organizations from six continents are supporting anti-fraud endeavors during the week.
"Fraud is an issue that unfortunately affects people from all walks of life around the world and it takes many forms," said ACFE President and CEO Bruce Dorris, J.D., CFE, CPA. "Whether it’s a trusted employee stealing from a small business, or organized rings of fraudsters targeting seniors in our community, most people know someone who’s been victimized by fraud. That’s why it’s so important for organizations to join in this fight together in order to raise awareness during this week. It is a serious problem that requires a proactive approach toward preventing fraud and educating people is the first step."
