This session will look at the psychology of occupational fraud, discuss the significance of sociopaths in examining the fraud triangle, and focus on classic rationalizations.  It is estimated that 3-5% of the American population is made up of psychopaths and sociopaths.  These people need no rationalization to commit occupational fraud.  The other 95% of the population does.  This session will examine some of the classic rationalizations used in committing occupational fraud and our role in counteracting these rationalizations.
