Course Description

Course Description

The best way to tackle fraud is to learn from fraud that has occurred in the past.

Construction fraud refers to illegal business practices committed by individual contractors or contracting firms hired to renovate, repair, or (re)build residential properties.

Construction fraud in the residential sector may also be referred to as ‘home improvement scams.’ Construction fraud encompasses a range of issues, from shoddy work and using substandard materials to escalating project costs and over-billing.

Construction fraud often ends up costing the victim twice because apart from losing a significant amount to the fraudster—whose inferior work may cause damage to previously undamaged parts of a home—a legitimate firm may also have to be paid to bring the work up to standard or repair the damage.

In this CPE Audit Course, we will look at some of the cases in the headlines now. We will also talk about controls and other strategies to implement to prevent fraud from happening on your projects.
