Fraud Cases and Their Impact on Auditors and Fraud Examiners
As the foundation for learning points, this seminar uses actual fraud cases – many handled personally by the program instructor. Participants can find learning points in every fraud incident, and should review and adjust their approach as a result. In this program we review the details of real fraud cases covering misappropriation, manipulation of results, vendor and contractor overcharges, and corruption. We’ll have examples from industry, government, education and not-for-profit organizations. You will benefit from developing action steps to take back to the job through individual and small work team brainstorming.
