This course will review fraud schemes used to commit financial statement fraud and misappropriate assets from organizations. Fraud schemes committed by employees, customers, vendors, management, and outsiders will be discussed. Various internal controls that can help prevent and detect these types of fraud will be reviewed. Additionally, the procedures for performing a risk assessment for fraud will be explained. There will be case studies of specific frauds that cover how the fraud occurred, how the fraud was discovered, and what could have been done to prevent the fraud from occurring.
Occupational fraud is an ongoing concern for all businesses. The ability to detect fraud is based on an understanding of how frauds occur. This course will also help participants develop skills in recognizing the red flags for fraud and creating and improving anti-fraud controls for businesses. Real world examples of asset misappropriation schemes and financial statement frauds will be presented so the participants can get a feel for how and why these frauds occur. We will discuss developing anti-fraud controls to help prevent and detect asset misappropriations and financial statement frauds.
