Webcast: Accounting Fraud: What We Can Do Better (XCPGAFA217)
Tell a Friend About This EventTell a Friend
 

This program is not like any other fraud course you may have taken. Discover an entirely different approach to studying fraud. Identify the disconnect between what we (the accountants) and what they (the fraudsters) do. CPAs need to be able to identify where fraud will most likely occur. In today's litigious society, the detection of fraud is not limited to auditors. Anyone who becomes aware of a possible fraudulent situation ignores the implications at their own peril.
