Why Auditors Fail To Detect Fraud
Monday, May 25, 2020
The professional standards state that auditors fail to detect fraud for two basic reasons: 1. They don't know what it looks like and, 2. They haven't been trained to look for it. The goal of this presentation is to assist auditors in identifying fraud and how to look for it. In order for a fraudster to be successful, they must be able to convenience everyone that their actions are legitimate. However, no matter how hard they try, there is always a little something different about a fraudulent transaction or activity; and that is what the auditor has to be on the lookout for. This presentation is designed to assist the participant to identify suspicious activities and what to do as a result.
