Course Description

This fascinating course examines a number of real-life fraud schemes and explains in detail how and why they worked. We’ll delve into many different types of fraud – including money laundering, forgery, and misappropriation of assets – in several different types of business and organizations. For each case study, the instructor provides valuable insight into how the fraud was eventually detected, why it occurred, and how it could have been prevented. You’ll come away with a better understanding of what you can do to prevent fraud in your organization.
