This course is designed for individuals who would like to refresh their understanding of fraud schemes and to learn how to recognize the red flags for detecting fraud. Understanding how criminals commit fraud is the first step in preventing fraud. Emphasis will be given to frauds and fraud schemes prevalent in the last year.
