Arresting Financial Fraud: The Inside Story From The FBI
A FREE Interactive Webcast By The AICPA
Live Webcast!
November 6, 2003
1 - 2:55 pm ET
Recommended CPE: 2 credits

Presented by:



The public has recently been inundated with media reports of accounting scandals at the likes of Enron, Worldcom, HealthSouth and other large public companies. The magnitude of the problem reaches far beyond these companies and, as a result, the FBI is currently pursuing numerous cases involving allegations of corporate fraud in companies both large and small. These investigations cross a number of industries and affect millions of people and other organizations across the country.

The AICPA and senior members of management of the Federal Bureau of Investigation will join forces and present a free , interactive webcast about preventing and detecting corporate financial fraud.

This unique program will look back and discuss “lessons learned” from real-life war stories out of the cases pursued by the FBI. Find out what happened, why it should have been caught early on and how to keep it from happening to your employer or client.

The program will also look forward and discuss the FBI's “Fraud Radar,” where it's currently focused and areas of future concern. Use this information going forward to help prevent and detect financial fraud by knowing areas of higher risk.
