Written Statement Analysis
Written statement analysis is the process of detecting deception by evaluating the contents of a documented statement. The underlying concept is that a deceptive person describes events from their imagination, rather than memory, and is therefore likely to manifest dishonesty in recognizable patterns of speech and word selection. Because of this, written statements can play a key part in evaluating deception during a fraud examination.
This course will help you understand how every word plays a part in a statement and how to identify signs of fabrication that could be staring back at you from the written page.
- Red flags related to the fabrication of information
- How to uncover dishonesty using patterns of speech
- Using parts of speech to validate or invalidate a statement
- How to differentiate between honest and dishonest responses from subjects
