Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

The cost of fraud to an organization goes well beyond dollars and cents. Fraud ruins reputations and lives and brings down even the most successful organizations. Although having a well-designed fraud detection system can significantly reduce the chance of fraud from occurring within your organization, the key to detecting fraud is an understanding of where people and organizational value meet, paving the way for fraud.

Drawing from the author's thirty years providing fraud training and prevention/detection services for professionals, Detecting Fraud in Organizations: Techniques, Tools, and Resources is designed to get you proactively thinking about fraud from a new perspective. Straightforward, simple, and entertaining in presentation, this unique book focuses on the people in today's organizations and on pinpointing how the value within those organizations is exposed to fraud.

Featuring a companion website with additional fraud case studies and business process maps, this practical, hands-on guide explores:

  • Fraud and why it keeps happening
  • How to get a handle on transactions
  • What happens when someone decides to commit fraud
  • The six Ps of successful fraudsters: passion, philosophy, planning, persistence, patience, and prison
  • How to build a case—document organization, data analysis, and lifestyle analysis
  • Fraud control points in the organizational process

Filled with cartoons, pictures, motivational quotes, and one-minute mysteries that creatively help readers to see beyond numbers and instead focus on open, proactive communication with organizational staff, Detecting Fraud in Organizations looks at the people in today's organizations and identifies how and where the value within your organization may potentially be exposed to fraud.
