"Tiffany Couch is one of the ACFE's most respected members. In this book, she shares practical advice on detecting and preventing many of the internal frauds that organizations fall victim to each day. Her use of actual case examples and personal stories makes the lessons less like a textbook and more like a good "whodunit." It is a great resource for both business management and anti-fraud professionals."

If there indeed is such a thing as a "wise criminal" surely the resolution, education and intelligence of the fraudster who takes advantage of the trust of his employer for personal gain qualifies for such a label particularly as it relates to the frequent lack of or late detection of his crimes.
In her excellent book on the topic of "familiar" fraudsters Tiffany Couch classifies businesses and organizations into three categories: those which have been victimized, those which will be, and those which have been victimized but will not be again having learned from their mistakes.
If you find yourself in the first category, you will find solace in Tiffany's poignant stories that the emotions you felt when the betrayed trust was finally exposed are natural and shared by all who are victimized in this way. Your membership card now punched, use Tiffany's suggestions in this book to leverage membership into that third category.
If you imagine yourself a member of the illusory fourth category: those who have not been victims and never will be, you are probably actually in the second category and Tiffany's revelations of typical weak spots in the defense against fraud are ignored at your peril. If you find nothing in this book currently of value to you, don't cast it aside but keep if for that nearly inevitable time in the future when, suffering from the betrayal of trust resulting from your willful ignorance of the information Tiffany provides in this book, you are in need of the consolation of those who have gone before you and you want to know how to keep it from happening again.
This book is a great reminder for us to keep the radar running as we manage our businesses.
