Corporate Fraud Handbook 5th Edition


It is much more cost-effective to prevent fraud than to punish it. Providing an insider's look into the most prevalent fraud schemes used by employees, owners, managers and executives, this book provides you with a systematic approach to stop fraud before it happens.

In the Corporate Fraud Handbook, Fifth Edition, Wells explores the three main categories of occupational fraud and abuse – asset misappropriation, corruption and fraudulent statements. Wells also provides an overview of the complex social factors that go into creating an occupational offender, exploring why people do things and for what reasons. Understanding why employees engage in this behavior is key to creating ways to prevent it.

Highlights Include: 

  • Case studies revealing clear insights into the mind of the fraudulent employee
  • Statistics from the ACFE’s 2016 Report to the Nations showing the average cost and prevalence for each method of fraud
  • Flowchart illustrations of fraud schemes and their variations
  • Guidance for creating prevention and detection strategies
  • Techniques for identifying the warning signs of fraud
