Course Description

Course Description

Every day the news is full of stories of white-collar crime.  It is estimated that companies lose on average 5% of annual revenues to fraud…NOTE that is 5% of annual revenues, not annual profit. The numbers are huge. This is because it is profitable, and difficult to detect, and the remote likelihood of prosecution and the resulting light penalties make it very tempting. 

Whether you are involved in evaluating the creditworthiness of a prospective customer, analyzing investment opportunities, or even beginning to suspect that something funny is going on in your own company, this online CPE/CE course will give you the tools to determine what is really going on. 

It's not just about the financial statements, this online forensic accounting CPE webinar will show you how to conduct a preliminary investigation. It will also help you determine if you are dealing with fraud or simply incompetence, and what steps to take next.

It's more than accounting and more than detective work. It is the application of a specialized body of knowledge to economic transaction analysis and reporting.

This Online CPE Webinar covers the following Key Topics:

  • Recognize the signs of fraud.
  • Learn effective strategies for discovering and following the trail to the proof.
  • Read between the lines of merger and acquisition financials.
  • Discover the ever-present story of cash flow.
  • Identify people and companies in trouble.
  • Develop prediction strategies and policies that detect fraud earlier.
  • Turn fraud detection into a profitable activity.

First rate session. The instructor isn't as "dynamic" as some - but as a fraud examiner, what did we expect? :) Great content, well-presented
