Course Description

Recently, have you noticed that your managing agent has exchanged his old Toyota for a new Mercedes? Has he installed a new addition to his house? Has he appeared erratic...and returning from jaunts to Atlantic City all the time? If so, it might be time to check the building’s books and records for suspicious activity and possible fraud. Either your manager just won the lottery and decided to keep his job...or these are signs of fraud.

Homeowner associations can be wonderful. They allow for community building, upkeep, and beautification of shared spaces and entire neighborhoods, and can increase property value. However, they do come with the risk of possible homeowner association fraud.

Homeowner association fraud happens when funds are used inappropriately, irresponsibly, or even criminally. It’s important to be informed about—and have a clear picture of—how and why funds are used. Unfortunately, it is not unusual for funds to mysteriously go missing or be unaccounted for.

In this online CPE course, the speaker Dr. Robert Minniti, CPA will provide you with a solid understanding of HOA fraud investigations. You will become familiar with the requirements of HOA fraud investigations.
