..".fraud auditors and investigators don't get delivered by the stork fully formed and professionally at the top of their game. We all learn our trade by a mixture of other colleagues' experiences, learning what can or cannot be done and, ultimately, we learn from our own earlier mistakes." --Peter Tickner Fraud is a key business risk for all organizations, and costs the UK economy billions of pounds every year. Fraud prevention, through effective internal controls and systems is only part of the story: if the safeguards fail, and a fraud is committed, auditors must be able to detect and investigate it successfully. Each fraud is different, but there are themes which are common to most, if not all cases, and being able to spot these warning signs is a skill developed through practice and experience. In "The Successful Frauditor's Casebook," seasoned auditor and fraud investigator Peter Tickner shares the benefit of his years of experience in detecting and investigating frauds in both the public and private sectors. Through an examination of real-life examples of fraud, Peter provides insightful analysis of the factors which allowed the frauds to develop, and a robust assessment of the processes of detection and investigation in each case. He also takes a detailed look at the steps taken by the affected organizations to recover from the damage caused by the fraud, highlighting the most, and the least, successful methods. Written in Peter's inimitable 'no holds barred' style, "The Successful Frauditor's Casebook" is an interesting, invaluable and occasionally humorous resource for all audit professionals, fraud investigators and managers wanting to know more about the art of successful fraud investigation. "Peter Tickner's case studies are perfect 'what would you do next' insights into how to detect and investigate frauds at all levels, culminating in probably one of the most difficult jobs in the UK - auditing the Metropolitan Police Service. This second book packs a wealth of expertise and experience (as well as common sense) that provides practitioners with guidance on what to do, and how, as well as an understanding of the difficulties in auditing fraud, the strength to take on vested interests and the tenacity to succeed. A compelling book that complements its predecessor." --Alan Doig, Visiting Professor, Centre for Public Services Management, Liverpool Business School, Liverpool John Moores University, United Kingdom
