Essentials of Corporate Fraud is used by small business owners, internal audit departments, outside auditors, financial investigators, and college professors to introduce professionals and students to take control of financial fraud.
The book is much more than a primer on anti-fraud theories… It is a real-world look at how fraud occurs from an expert who has investigated hundreds of internal frauds, including embezzlement, financial statement fraud, insurance fraud, investment fraud, bribery, and corruption.
Tracy introduces us to those committing fraud, the companies they’re committing fraud against, and the methods used to commit and conceal fraud. Her broad experience ranging from law enforcement to traditional auditing and finally to forensic accounting and fraud investigations brings a unique perspective to this publication.
Essentials of Corporate Fraud gives you the tools to start addressing the problem of fraud in your company today. Companies can no longer afford to wait for the “right time” to start fighting fraud.
