According to the 2020 Report to the Nations, published by the ACFE, three of the five asset misappropriation schemes presenting the greatest risk involve the misappropriation of cash. They are:
• Check and payment tampering
• Cash larceny
A deficiency in internal control that prevents an entity from protecting its cash is putting that entity’s existence into jeopardy. It is management’s responsibility to develop, implement, and maintain controls to protect the entity’s assets from misappropriation as well as to otherwise achieve management objectives. In addition, regardless of the actual relationship or the service performed by a CPA for a client, in many cases a client will hold the CPA responsible for the detection of fraud and many even hold the CPA liable for fraud subsequently detected by others.
This course describes the most common types of fraud schemes used to misappropriate cash, including how they are committed, the conditions under which they will be successful, and the impact on various financial statement components. We will identify the signs that may be indicators of fraud, and the controls that may be effective for prevention.
Using a case study approach, the program will review three fraud cases one for each of the above-mentioned types. The scheme, the perpetrators, and other aspects will be discussed. Looking at the conditions under which each was successful, we will discuss the development of controls that may have been able to prevent them and the signs that can be used to detect fraud that has occurred.
