How does a Mystery Fraud Event work?

Attendees will sit down to a meal to find they have been hired by the fictitious auditing and fraud examination firm “Safe-T-Accounts”. For the next three training hours, they will participate in evaluating evidence, interviewing suspects, and working on a live case to resolution. It’s a working lunch, but don’t worry...there is always time for dessert!  

We can’t tell you the type of frauds, because that would give it away. The training objectives include:

1, Interviewing skills
2, Data analysis
3. General fraud examination skills

Who will benefit?

Auditors, Controllers, CPA’s, CAE’s, CIO’s, CEO’s, CMA's, compliance and risk managers, ethics officers, and anyone wanting to improve their fraud detection skills.
