Fraud schemes can be as diverse as the imaginations of those who concoct them, and as sophisticated as ever-evolving technology will allow. But the consequences of fraud can be painfully simple - financial and reputational damage to an organization and its employees. As a result, it's essential for workers at all levels of an organization to be proactive and alert to suspicious financial activity. This course will explore common sources of financial fraud, the signs that indicate risk for fraud, and the importance of reporting any suspicious activities or behaviors.
