From the Inside Flap:

FRAUD CASEBOOK
Lessons from the Bad Side of Business

Fraud is a serious problem that goes beyond monetary losses. It costs jobs, corporate reputations, and individual dignity. Fraud Casebook: Lessons from the Bad Side of Business is the most comprehensive book ever compiled on fraud case studies, presenting the collected insights of some of the most experienced fraud examiners around the world. With revealing case studies handpicked and edited by Joseph T. Wells, the founder and Chairman of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFESM)—the world's leading anti-fraud organization—this collection sheds light into the dark corners of government and commerce through professional investigations.

Organized around the various categories of fraud, the cases in this exceptional casebook explore three broad categories of fraud as well as their various sub-schemes: asset misappropriations, corruption, and fraudulent financial statements. Each case provides an informative and entertaining look into the complex social factors behind fraudulent behavior. The observations of each fraud examiner, drawn from years of practical experience, provide readers with invaluable perspectives, many of hich have never before been conveyed publicly. Some of the sixty-two cases in Fraud Casebook include:

  • Swimming with the Sharks, Pedro Fabiano
  • Con Artists Gone Wild, Heinz Ickert
  • Bodies for Rent, Rebecca Busch
  • Information Superhighway, Barry Davidow
  • Dialing for Dollars, Ian Henderson
  • The $13 Million Man, John Francolla
  • Her Passion for Fashion, Bethmara Kessler

Fraud Casebook: Lessons from the Bad Side of Business not only provides an insider look at fraud, it serves to educate readers to hopefully avert some of the mistakes made in the past. It illuminates the combination of timing, teamwork, and vision necessary to understand fraud and prevent it from happening in the first place. Finally, it challenges senior managers to better use their corporate resources to become much smarter about fraud, or risk becoming its victims.
