How are fraud schemes perpetrated? How much is stolen? How can you prevent and detect these schemes? These questions are answered by a review of landmark fraud studies - including those conducted by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations (COSO), the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE), and large CPA firms, to name a few. Based on these studies, we will provide you with a list of the Top Ten Fraud Schemes. In this webcast, you will investigate fraud red flags for non-traditional schemes. The categories of non-traditional fraud schemes include corruption, Ponzi and Asset Flip. These are not usually addressed in traditional fraud courses, but many organizations have experienced significant financial losses due to these schemes. We will also address issues concerning non-traditional schemes to prevent you from facing similar financial losses. Real-world cases will reinforce these concepts of scheme methodology, related red flags and internal controls.
