Advanced Forensic Accounting
Fraud, by its very nature, is intended to be hidden. Fraud can masquerade as a labyrinth of complex entries or concepts, very easily meeting its target to deceive. Fraud is not complicated, yet it employs a pervasive role in today's corporate environment. Individuals and organizations can no longer afford to ignore fraud. The decision to disregard the existence or impact of fraud becomes a fraudster's opportunity. It is rare the organization or individual who can escape from the occurrence of fraud.
