Description

SAS No. 122, AU 240, Consideration of Fraud In A Financial Statement Audit states that auditors fail to detect fraud for two primary reasons:  1. They don’t know what it looks like and, 2. They don’t know how to look for it.

 

This presentation is designed to assist those attending to be able to identify the tell-tell indicators of fraud.  What Does Fraud Look Like?  I don’t know …… but I’ll know it when I see it.  In order to first to be able to identify fraud, one must understand the entity and the environment that it exists in.  After all, it is possible and indicator of fraud in one business would be a normal part of operations in another, and you have to know the difference.
