OVERVIEW
Fraud can occur in any organization, big or small. During this session, the presenter will use a recent fraud investigation to provide an understanding of how the various fraudulent activities were detected and investigated. Proactive measures that might have assisted in preventing the fraud or in detecting the fraud sooner will be discussed.

The case to be presented is comprised of fake vendors, ghost employees, expense reporting fraud, fraudulent purchases on a credit card and the theft of gifts purchased for employees. Investigative techniques highlighted include the execution of an Anton Piller Order, imaging computers and background checks.

Learning Objectives include:

  1. Insights on how fraud can occur in organizations.
  2. Understand the actions that should be taken to protect evidence when fraud is first suspected.
