Course Description

The webcast is timely, as Digital Frauds involving cryptocurrencies is trending up dramatically. The amount stolen from digital currency exchanges in the first half of 2018 was nearly three times more than in all of last year according to a new report by CipherTrace, a blockchain security firm. Sophisticated criminals in the United States and around the world are increasingly using cryptocurrencies in fraud and money laundering operations. Money laundering involving cryptocurrencies – a medium of exchange circulated over a computer network and generally not backed by a government – is a new twist on an old crime. This particular type of crime has broad implications for businesses, financial institutions and the accounting profession.

As cyber-crime continues to expand, CPAs and Forensic Accountants need to gain knowledge of the current trends facing the public. This webcast analyzes how cryptocurrencies are used to perpetrate cyber-fraud and traditional fraud schemes. As trusted advisors, CPAs can assist in providing effective measures to avoid cryptocurrency scams. This webinar will explore real-life examples of fraud cases involving virtual currencies.

Mark DiMichael introduced me to things i didn't know were happening in the Cryptocurrency world. I learned some info that i didn't know and as an auditor, its important information to review and audit various clients and applicants


I enjoyed this session. It covers the basics of a subject that is new to me. The presented really simplified the topic, in easy to understand segments, in a user-friendly tool. I really appreciated the opportunity to learn about my time! Thanks!


Even though no CE credit is given for this seminar, everyone will get invaluable information from it. It is one of the best cryptocurrency seminars that I have ever attended. I am so very inapt in this field and really do need to start understanding it before it gets more prevalent. Thanks


I have taken several webinars on the logistics and mechanics of cryptocurrency and thoroughly enjoyed this webinar's focus on forensics and fraud


This is an excellent introduction to issues around cryptocurrency that CPA's face in daily practice. Wonderful presenter and the Q&A running during the webinar was very well done - prompt and informative. Best webinar yet from myCPE.


This class gave good & concise information about Cryptocurrency, its frauds & forensics. Mr. DiMichael was an effective presenter. It was an hour well spent. I even came to the office earlier to prep myself for the class. I would like to attend something similar in the near future.
