Ghostbusters: Fighting Fictitious Employee Schemes (Webinar Archive)



CPE Credit: 2
Course Level: Overview
Prerequisite: None


Fictitious or ghost employee schemes can cause significant losses that might go undetected for months or years. These losses not only include financial losses, but also losses to morale and employee engagement after the full extent of an insider threat has been exposed.

This course follows a case study involving a $146,000 loss to a small college and the investigation that led to the fraudster's sentencing on federal wire fraud charges. This course will teach you how to strengthen oversight and controls, deter misconduct, detect irregularities and successfully investigate fictitious employee schemes before they cause significant losses.

You Will Learn How To:

Recall the definition of fictitious or ghost payroll schemes

Recognize risks of fictitious or ghost payroll schemes

Identify strategies used to mitigate fictitious or ghost payroll schemes

Determine ways to work with state and federal law enforcement officers to investigate and assist in the prosecution of fictitious or ghost payroll schemes
