Overview:

According to the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners annual report, nearly half of all small businesses experience fraud at some point in their business lifecycle. Worse, some fraud is committed by a "loyal"  employee.

In this course we will define what is fraud, how to identify fraud schemes, typical frauds, contract fraud, e-commerce fraud, false invoicing plus review actual fraud cases and learn fraud indicators.

Below are examples of four different kinds of fraud we will discuss.

  1.      Payroll fraud.
    The best way to prevent payroll fraud is to reconcile all balance sheet accounts and payroll records monthly or, at the very least, quarterly. Look for any discrepancies and investigate them until you have a clear answer.
  2.     "Double check" fraud.
    It is very hard for business owners to catch this type of activity. As a business owner, it is difficult to find good accounting help, but it is important to have more than just one person signing checks and reconciling the bank account.
  3.     Over-ordering fraud.
    The easiest way for this business to have avoided this type of fraud is to do the right thing from the start. Good employees pay for themselves on average tenfold, and bad employees can ruin companies.
  4.     "Friendship" fraud.
    Never hire anyone solely based upon friendship, family, obligation, or feelings of sympathy. Build a culture of accountability, measure results, and make sure everyone knows that you are looking at their performance. Then, hire based on talent, and pay for that talent to perform at a high level of accountability and integrity.

In this information rich seminar we will discuss integrity, ethics, code of conduct, principles of professional practice. Standard of professional conduct internal controls, how to establish internal controls and the government contracting process. Others areas including but not limited to; Contract fraud, Common fraud schemes, health care fraud, governmental fraud, employment fraud, operational fraud plus action required, criminal and civil penalties.

We will have group fraud cases assigned for presentation by the group including what should have been done to avoid the fraud.

Why should you attend?

Fraud refers to illegal acts that intentionally divest the funds of a company through deception or scams. Industry professionals estimate that businesses lose approximately 5% to 6% of their revenues due to fraudulent transactions each year. The average fraud takes approximately 18 months to discover!

If unchecked or not discovered these losses tend to quickly escalate, decreasing profitability, eroding shareholder confidence, causing brand damage, bringing negative press, and increasing regulatory scrutiny (often leading to fines, sanctions and penalties).

This information rich seminar teaches participants techniques and approaches to address business fraud. This webinar will enhance your knowledge of your job by helping you understand the elements / types of fraud. Fraud prevention controls are a key part of any organization's continued growth, performance and success.

With fraud at an all-time high, a well-designed internal control structure will enhances operations by improving your department's over security, effective and effectiveness. As all business managers, officers, owners and employees know without an effective system, the organization may be open to fraudulent transactions, theft, hefty fines, penalties, fines stricter government laws and rules.

US companies alone, lose approximately 6% to 8% of their Gross Revenue to fraudulent transactions each year.
