You are a Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE), and you have graduated from AIU. Since college 4 years ago, you have been working as a fraud investigator for a large retail company, and by now you, are considered to be an expert in fraud investigations. As a fraud investigation expert, you are preparing to give an educational presentation about management fraud at the annual Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) conference, which will be held in Las Vegas. The public is becoming more aware that fraud is a serious problem. Recent financial scandals involving accounting schemes and Ponzi investment schemes have highlighted examples of significant frauds.

Your goal is to make sure that all levels of management understand the effects of fraud on themselves and the corporations that they represent. You must select a component that you feel is critical and prepare a PowerPoint presentation of 4–6 slides about 1 concept of management fraud. The goal is to provide an accurate and strong message that management fraud is destructive toward good business and should not be tolerated by corporations.

Select 1 concept of management fraud that you feel is critical to a corporation’s survival, and explain in your presentation how management may best avoid that aspect of fraud.

Assignment Guidelines

Prepare a PowerPoint presentation of 4–6 slides. It should have bullet points within the slides that are supported by the notes in the note section below the slides. In addition to the content slides, there needs to be a title slide and a reference slide that shows the references that you used for the presentation in American Psychological Association (APA) format.

Slides should not be smaller than size 24 font, and the type may be in any nonscript-blocked format such as Arial, Times New Roman, Century New, and so forth.

Remember that this presentation is going to be presented to corporate executives, and it should not contain a lot of pictures, clip art, or fancy backgrounds. A simple slide font that contrasts with the background will suffice.
