Course Description

Fraud continues to plague businesses at epidemic levels and internal control omissions and failures are a large reason because of which fraud occurs.

SAS No. 122, AU 240, Consideration of Fraud In A Financial Statement Audit states that auditors fail to detect fraud for two basic reasons: 

  • They don’t know what fraud looks like.
  • They don’t know how to look for a fraud. 

Organizations are relying on accounting professionals like you for proactive fraud detection and prevention strategies. This presentation discusses the many indicators of fraud that the auditor should always be cognizant of and the audit procedures specifically designed to detect fraud. In addition, the concept of professional skepticism, how one obtains it and its importance in detecting fraud will also be discussed.

MAJOR TOPICS COVERED:

  • Fraud’s cost – ACFE’s Report to the Nations; Ancillary costs
  • Power of morale – Shrink the fraud triangle; Motivation

This brought out several ideas that I have never used in my auditing career and now that I am an instructor I am excited to pass this valuable information to my students.

This was one of the best presented webinars I have participated in. Instructor was very informative and practical in the application of the principles. After many, many years of auditing, I could tell that he was practical and right on with every point.
