Hardcover Verified Purchase. The book is relatively well written with easily understood concepts. The massive amount of examples are tremendously helpful in bridging the gap between theoretical academics and real life fraud as well as making the reader think about fraud in different ways. For example, one case is about a normal inventory audit, except that the company was trying to pull a fast one by overstating their inventory.
What the auditors did was to check the weight and size of the inventory that was on the books and compare it to the warehouse size and capacity of their forklifts. The two did not match as the warehouse was too small to fit all of the inventory and the weights of the products were far in excess of what a forklift could lift. The main issue and this was already brought up was redundancy.
The book tends to do through out the book. I haven't quite figured it out if its meant to reinforce specific concepts or if their editor was just incompetent.
The book is still useful for those who haven't taken audit and useful for those who have as it either lays some knowledge for audit courses or reinforces audit knowledge. This book is a very thorough and well-written introduction to the field of fraud examination. Authors' lucid and easy-to-read style with plenty of fraud story examples is helpful to digest complex concepts such as financial statement frauds and e-commerce frauds.
Chapter sizes are carefully kept small. Quizzes and case studies are also well-thought out. Some reviews on Amazon don't do this book a justice. Overall a comprehensive text book in the area of Fraud examination. Seems like the 3 authors wrote this book without communication amongst each other. There is a lot of repetition, this book is over pages and could be summarized in pages. In each chapter you re-read over and over again the stuff you've just read.
It is also quite elementary The good point is that there are a lot of examples. Best textbook I have had to read in years.
Clear information with good examples. Not annoying to read. My grandson was very happy with the book and the mailing service It cam right on time.

Set up a giveaway. True In civil cases, fraud experts often serve as expert witnesses. Technology has tended to increase the size and frequency of frauds committed.
Confidence is the single most critical element for a fraud to be successful. Unintentional errors in the financial statements are not considered fraud.
There must always be "intent" for something to be fraud. Occupational fraud is usually committed against an organization. Direct fraud does not involve third parties; indirect fraud involves a third party. Customer fraud involves a customer who does not pay for goods or services. Vendor fraud involves a vendor who provides inferior goods, overcharges, or pays bribes to get favored treatment.
Only criminal lawsuits result in jail time for the perpetrator. Negative outcomes in civil lawsuits result in restitution and damage payments. One of the seven elements of a fraud is that the deception must be intentional. Fraud perpetrators come in all kinds and varieties, but always have to be trusted. If they did not have the trust of their victims, they would not have been put in a position where they could commit a fraud.
A CFE focuses on the prevention and detection of fraud. A Certified Public Accountant, on the other hand, focuses on all aspects of accounting. Multiple Choice 1. Alexander, Inc. These amounts are different because the profit margins of these companies are different. Clever, Inc. On the other hand, Alexander, Inc.
It is usually easier for a service corporation with a higher profit margin to recover from fraud losses than it is for manufacturing companies that must generate more money to recover fraud losses, such as Clever. Case 2 1. Unintentional errors and fraud are quite different from each other. An unintentional error is an error made by accident or without intent. Fraud, on the other hand, is intentional and most often involves trickery or deceit.
While advances in technology have helped to prevent and detect some fraud, these advances have opened up new ways for perpetrators to commit fraud that before were unthinkable. Computers, the Internet, and complex accounting systems have made it so easy that perpetrators need only to make a telephone call, manipulate a computer program, or press a key on the keyboard to commit fraud.
Case 3 1. Customer fraud 2. Employee embezzlement 4. Management fraud 5. Vendor fraud. Miscellaneous fraud Case 4 Fraud statistics are hard to obtain for several reasons. First, we can never know exactly what percentage of fraud is discovered.
Second, the victim organization quietly handles many frauds that are discovered, never making them public. Victim organizations often like to avoid publicity and the costs associated with investigating and prosecuting fraud. These and other factors make it very difficult to research fraud and for accurate statistics to be obtained.
Case 5 As the number of frauds and amounts of fraud losses increase, so do the opportunities for successful fraud-fighting careers. Many believe that fraud examination and forensic accounting will be among the fastest growing and most rewarding careers in the future.
Government fraud-fighters, consultant fraud-fighters, corporate employee fraud-fighters, and defense and plaintiff lawyers are just a few of the possible careers related to fraud prevention and detection. Case 6 When fraud is detected, companies should prosecute if possible, both in criminal and civil courts. By proceeding in a civil suit, the company can try to recover some of the money lost from the fraud.
By pursuing a criminal suit, the company can ensure that when other companies hire the perpetrator, those companies will know that the employee has committed fraud in the past and will be able to prevent the prospective employee from being in a position that provides the opportunity to commit fraud again.
Firms do not often pursue both civil and criminal remedies, and sometimes do neither because of litigation costs, time involved, or the desire to avoid negative press. Case 7 1. Fraud occurs when individuals intentionally cheat or deceive others to their advantage. In this case, Bob is committing a fraud. Regardless of the magnitude of the charges, he is intentionally charging nonbusiness lunches to his employer.
This is also known as employee fraud, or occupational fraud. Fortunately, in this case nothing has been done that cannot be corrected easily. Since Bob is justifying his behavior by saying the recent memo pertaining to meal expenses does not apply to him because he is an intern, you should try to help Bob see the error of his logic and encourage him to correct the charges.
If Bob is unwilling to change his behavior, the appropriate superior should probably be notified. Case 9 1. Some of the various types of fraud that can affect an insurance company are: Employee fraud—individuals involved in the benefits area can create false claims for nonexistent policyholders.
The victim is the company, and the perpetrator is the employee. Management fraud—the company can create nonexistent policyholders to make their revenues appear greater. The victims are the stockholders and other financial institutions that rely on the financial statements.
The perpetrators are members of management with the company. Customer fraud—policyholders can create false claims to collect money. The victim is the company, and the perpetrators are the customers.
Case 10 Fraud examiners investigate suspected fraudulent activity, whereas auditors are concerned about the overall fairness of the financial statements.
The auditor uses sampling to test the account balances to make sure the accounts are not overstated or understated. Fraud examination cannot be done effectively through sampling. In fraud examination, each transaction should be reviewed and evaluated. Case 11 1. There are many reasons why Cesar should be terminated from employment.
However, one of the most apparent reasons is that organizations that do not work proactively at fraud prevention and detection find themselves as frequent targets of fraud schemes, with the fraud becoming more and more costly. A message that perpetrators will be prosecuted deters other potential fraud by reducing the perceived opportunity.
An individual who commits fraud and is not punished or is merely terminated suffers no significant penalty and often resumes the fraudulent behavior. If prosecuted, the individual suffers significant embarrassment when family, friends, and business.
Humiliation is often the strongest factor in deterring future fraud activity. Case 12 Nancy should be concerned. First, the bank has a mandatory one-week long vacation policy. Bob should not be allowed to be an exception. Bob also fits many of the demographics for a fraud perpetrator: Nancy should not assume that Bob has committed fraud; however, she should demand that Bob take a mandatory vacation, and she should be alert for additional signs of fraud.
Case 13 While answers may vary, the following is one possible answer: The management frauds to which your friend refers involve much more than just stealing money.
