Course Description

In our personal and professional lives, we are susceptible to fraud on a continual basis. Trust is the foundation for building individual and business relationships, but trust is also a fraudster’s best friend. Differentiating between meaningful relationships and fraud requires understanding the motivation and rationale that fraudsters use to justify their actions. This understanding is a critical component in predicting and recognizing fraudulent behavior. Once you understand the fraudster's rationale, your next step in prevention is situational awareness, or being aware of and taking responsibility for your physical well-being and security.
