Fraud involves deceit with the intent to illegally or unethically benefit at the cost of another. In financial transactions, fraud can take many forms. For instance, making false insurance claims, cooking the books, pump & dump schemes, and identity theft leading to unauthorized purchases, etc. Fraud costs every economy innumerable amounts of money and confidence each year. Therefore, those who are caught are subject to fines and jail time.
Businesses suffer huge expenses from fraud, with almost 25% of the 2,410 cases examined by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners in 2016 exceeding $1 million. These large costs motivate businesses to hire CPAs to catch those responsible and bring an end to fraudulent activities.
One of the main reasons CPAs and other accountants often fail to detect fraud is that they are too honest. They find it difficult to think like a criminal.
New methods of committing fraud have increased in connection with improved technology, requiring CPAs to stay current with news and technological advances to identify modern fraudulent activities.
This CPE/CPD course is designed by speaker Robert Minniti for individuals who would like to refresh their understanding of fraud schemes and learn how to recognize the red flags for detecting fraud.
Understanding how criminals commit fraud is the first step in preventing fraud. Emphasis will be given to frauds and fraud schemes prevalent in the last year. This is not an introductory course but a review to gain a better understanding of fraud
