Recent Frauds Occurring in Not-for-Profit Entities & Governments

1:00 pm–4:45 pm ET

# of CPE Credits



When stories of fraud make the news, they can look so obvious after the fact. Regardless of whether the fraud was material, the media and the public frequently ask how the auditor and those within the entity could not have detected the fraud. Fraud can be very difficult to detect, particularly without the luxury of hindsight. In this course, we will look at over 20 frauds that recently occurred and with the luxury of hindsight study how they happened and perhaps how they could have been prevented or detected. The course materials utilize a highly illustrative and innovative format. Over 15 focused exercises are included to provide an enhanced knowledge of fraud occurring in not-for-profit entities and governments.


* Improve your awareness of real-world frauds occurring in not-for-profit entities and governments * Implement useful fraud prevention tools * Perceive how real-world frauds were actually discovered


* Recent frauds that occurred in not-for-profit entities involving: the theft of cash, falsified billings, improper use of credit cards, the redirection of cash and noncash contributions, conversion of assets, the redirection of benefits, grant-related fraud, and travel and expense reporting fraud * Recent frauds that occurred in governments involving: falsified applications for benefits, payroll fraud, vendor fraud, kickbacks, workers compensation and risk-management frauds, purchase card abuse, providing government services for personal benefit, misappropriation of utility payments, and theft of assets * Tools for fraud prevention and detection
