There are more fraud professionals today than every before, yet fraud and corruption continue to persist. Understanding fraud schemes, the fraud triangle fraudster characteristics and red flags is crucial, but there are still things that re frequently overlooked by the good guys because they aren’t always thinking like a bad guy. This course will take a look at several issues in organizations that were overlooked and ultimately led to significant fraud. Case studies will be used to examine the various situations, conditions and attitudes they created the opportunity, sometimes the pressure and occasionally even the rationalization for these fraud cases.
The course will be a combination of lecture, exercise and an examination of both well known fraud cases and the instructor’s personal fraud cases.
