Fraud and the Financial Professional


Fraud and fraud-related schemes have cost U.S. and international businesses and non-profits billions of dollars, and often have caused small companies to declare bankruptcy. While larger fraud schemes are typically uncovered during periods of economic recession, the role of CPA and accounting staff in helping to detect and prevent fraud throughout the business cycle has never been greater.
