This webinar will explain numerous types of accounts receivable fraud (A/R fraud). It will provide attendees best practices for detecting and preventing all major forms of this type of fraud.

Why Should You Attend:

The headlines are full of news about high-tech fraud such as data breaches and information theft. But it is a mistake to focus too much attention and resources on protecting the organization from these serious external crimes at the expense of potentially debilitating internal frauds. Among the latter, accounts receivables schemes too often are detected many months or even years after they were initiated, with serious financial losses being the usual consequence.

This webinar will focus on common forms of receivables theft and dissect the specific ways in which management falsifies receivables numbers in order to artificially inflate the organization’s financial numbers. It will cover case studies to illustrate the numerous forms of receivables fraud and will help attendees understand best practices for A/R fraud detection and prevention.

    Topic Background:

    Any organization’s receivables and revenue are potentially subject to theft by dishonest employees. Schemes involving skimming of customer cash, voiding sales at a retail point of sale and pocketing the cash, as well as misappropriation of customer payments through so-called lapping schemes, all threaten organizations with even the best internal controls in place.
    Moreover, accounts receivable is a favorite tool of financial reporting fraudsters. Misrepresenting actual revenue by creating phony customers, along with misclassification of revenue and failing to record liabilities are all revenue-related schemes designed to fraudulently inflate an organization’s financial performance.
