Instructor for this course

Most professionals have some understanding of the impact fraud can have on today’s businesses.  Individuals who are in the financial and audit fields are familiar with the concepts of the 'fraud triangle' and the elements of 'fraud red flags'.

This course is designed to provide the learner a different experience than typical fraud training.  Rather than focusing solely on the technical aspects of why fraud occurs and concepts of the fraud triangle, we utilize real-life case study scenarios to evaluate instances where fraud may be present and test the learner’s ability to identify fraud red flags.

This course includes multiple real-life fraud scenarios and poses questions to the learner about “what would you do”.  We review basic concepts surrounding the topic of fraud including the fraud triangle, fraud red flags and the profile of a fraudster.  We use these concepts to assist in evaluating real-life scenarios.

This session is designed to provide participants with the opportunity to practice their fraud knowledge.

  • Identify lifestyle indicators and explore how to manage culture expectations.
  • Recognize how to apply techniques to real-life perpetrated fraud scenarios.
