Course Description:  

Commonly referred to as "white collar" crime, corporate fraud is those illegal acts which are characterized by deceit, concealment, or violation of trust and which are not dependent upon the application or threat of physical force or violence. These acts are committed by individuals and organizations to obtain money or services; or to secure personal or business advantage. This course will recap several actual cases of corporate fraud as presented by the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) and U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ).

In addition, you will be introduced to an organization known as the Fraud Deterrence Initiative and have the opportunity to read the story of an actual corporate fraud criminal.

The purpose of this course is to educate you through the presentation of the crimes of others in the hopes that their stories will provide you with additional insight in how you can prevent crime from occurring in your workplace or those of your clients.

  • Recognize the Fraud Deterrence Initiative and the story behind how it got started
