From the Inside Flap:

If an employee brings home some office supplies for their kids to use with their school projects, is that fraud? How about when an employee charges personal items on the company's credit cards, receives vendor kickbacks, or inflates travel expenses? Instances of fraud occur every day and either go undetected, or are not deemed newsworthy enough to bring any attention to the matter. In fact, instances like these may be occurring right now in your organization—how will you know what to look for? And how can you stop it from taking place again?

Now fully revised, Fraud 101, Third Edition explains fraud in a practical, easily understood manner, serving as an enlightening tool for you, whether you are a business owner or manager, an accountant, or an auditor. A valuable introduction for dealing with fraud—from preventing and detecting it to investigating it, Fraud 101, Third Edition provides insightful advice on the inner workings of numerous financial schemes and the internal controls that will increase your awareness and possibly prevent fraud from destroying your organization's financial stability.

Offering guidance, understanding and new, real-world case studies on the major types of fraud, this new edition explores:

  • Why fraud is committed

  • An overview of financial fraud schemes

  • White-collar crime

  • Employee embezzlements

  • Internal fraud controls

  • The nature of collecting evidence

  • Investigative issues, including alternatives for resolving fraud-related matters

  • How to perform an effective investigation

  • Sample investigation procedures for the major fraud categories

Regardless of why an individual perpetrates a fraud, the end result is usually the same: a substantial financial loss to the organization, often involving a significant amount of money that may never be recovered.
