Ever wonder what makes a white-collar criminal tick? See the mind of the fraudster laid bare, including their sometimes twisted rationalizations. Along with a fascinating exploration of what makes people fall for common and not-so-common swindles, this book provides a sweeping characterization of the ecology of fraud using The A.B.C.'s of Behavioral Forensics paradigm: the bad Apple (rogue executive), the bad Bushel (groups that collude and behave like gangs), and the bad Crop (representing organization-wide or even societally-sanctioned cultures that are toxic and corrosive).This book encourages you to take a longer look when hiring new employees and offers a deeper more complex understanding of what happens in organizations and in their people. The A.B.C. model helps those inside and outside organizations inoculate against fraud. It teaches you how to instill the core values of your organization ino your people and create a culture of excellence and integrity that acts as a prophylactic against fraud. Ultimately, you will discover that, used wisely, behavioral methods trump solely economic incentives.
