The course was adequate but suggest you relook at the questions. The use of “not” in the questions is very confusing even for the most experienced person. Also your question in the final exam on incentives is poorly worded

This course contained an incredible amount of material for the time allotted. It was a great review of fraud risk id, assessment and response. Melisa is a master of her craft.
