From the Inside Flap

Corporate Fraud Handbook: Prevention and Detection, Second Edition

Fraud is a serious, costly, and growing epidemic for business and government.Now in a second edition, Corporate Fraud Handbook provides an insider's look into the most prevalent fraud schemes used by employees, owners, managers, and executives. Each scheme is illustrated with real-life case studies submitted to the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) by certified fraud examiners who aided in the case resolutions.

With tips and techniques to help spot the "red flags" of fraud, comply with recent regulation such as Sarbanes-Oxley, and develop and implement effective preventative measures, author and fraud authority Joseph Wells, founder and Chairman of the ACFE provides fraud examiners, auditors, investigators, loss prevention specialists, managers and business owners, criminologists, human resources personnel, academicians, and law enforcement professionals with a groundbreaking and relevant desktop resource.

Now including all-new statistics from the 2006 Report to the Nation, this comprehensive book explores the three main categories of occupational fraud and abuse—asset misappropriation, corruption, and fraudulent statements—and identifies and classifies thirteen separate schemes. Corporate Fraud Handbook, Second Edition also provides an overview of the complex social factors that go into creating an occupational offender, exploring the reasons behind people's deviances. In addition, this important book features:

  • Case studies revealing clear insights into the mind of the fraud-ulent employee

  • Observations and conclusions in each chapter to guide readers through devising prevention and detection strategies

  • A classification system explaining the various schemes used by offending executives, owners, managers, and employees

  • Tips and techniques to quantify the losses from schemes

From sophisticated investment swindles to petty theft, false overtime to pilferage, learn how to detect corporate fraud with the expert help found in Corporate Fraud Handbook.
