This month’s lecture for Chapter Members
This month’s lecture is UNDERSTANDING THE FRAUD SCENARIO for two CPE credits.
The concept of the fraud scenario is as critical to the fraud examination process as it is to the related process of auditing for fraud. The development of a comprehensive list of the fraud scenarios consistent with the organization under audit is vital to addressing fraud via the audit or the examination mechanism. The two most common responses to fraud risk are the fraud risk assessment and the design of a fraud audit program. Through construction of a fraud risk structure, the vital connection between the fraud risk assessment and the fraud audit program is made.
Accordingly, the ACFE tells us that this connection occurs through identification of the inherent fraud scheme, the related fraud scenarios, the fraud concealment strategies, and the fraud gain conversion point. Enjoy!
