How are fraud schemes perpetrated? Who does it? How much is stolen? What controls can be installed to prevent and detect these schemes? These and other 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), large CPA firms and others. A list of the Top Ten Fraud Schemes, based upon these studies, is provided. Learn the fraud red flags for non-traditional schemes like corruption, Ponzi and asset flip schemes. Because these non-traditional schemes are not usually addressed in traditional accounting fraud courses, numerous entities have incurred significant financial losses. As such, issues concerning these schemes are detailed in this course to help you prevent financial losses. Real-world cases are provided to reinforce concepts.

Topics Discussed:

  • In-depth review of classic and recent non-traditional fraud cases: Charles Ponzi, Bernard Madoff, ZeekRewards, HealthSouth, Apple Computers, Yelp and others
  • Results of recent notable fraud studies
  • Conflicts of Interest and other policies
  • Distinctions between Ponzi and pyramid schemes
  • Conflicts of interest (purchasing and sales schemes); bribery (kickbacks and bid rigging); Ponzi and other schemes
  • SEC response to the Madoff Ponzi Scheme
