Fraud 101, Third Edition will serve as an educational tool for business managers, accountants, auditors, and college students who need to learn about the nature of fraud across various industries. This book creates the awareness that any fraud that is detected usually comprises a relatively small percentage of the fraud universe, and that traditional methods of fraud detection are only minimally effective. Fraud 101, Third Edition provides guidance and new, real-world case studies on the major types of fraud. The Third Edition will be more comprehensive, covering healthcare fraud, Insurance/Banking Fraud, White Collar Crime, Identity Theft Fraud, as well as fraud specific internal controls and corporate governance guidance.
