Case Presentation: Part 1
You are asked to develop or draft a case
describing a type of fraud consistent with one of the many types we
discussed during the class (such as larceny, asset misappropriation, or cash skimming, among others). You are making
up the details of a case of the type you select for this
assignment. You are not searching for an actual case from
published literature. This is a little unusual, but if you understand the specific aspects of the type of fraud you choose for this
assignment, you will build a scenario that relates well to the fraud case
analysis. You will not run into the problem often noted with real
cases where some aspect of a case is not disclosed in an article.
Where to Start: Using the Fraud Tree Report to the Nations
of the Corporate Fraud Handbook by Joseph Wells)
Select a Type of Fraud for your Case and build
your Presentation
The case discussion in your Report should
include, at a minimum, the setting where the fraud occurred, a
description of the individuals involved in the fraud, and how those individuals covered their fraud from immediate disclosure. It would also be good to discuss how the perpetrator in the fraud
you discuss was able to circumvent the controls within the organizational
setting you describe.
Typically, this will involve two to three
paragraphs but no more than one page. Remember, this is not a real case and
should be developed considering the type of fraud you selected, and
the typical issues involved with such cases. The case should be
written in prose rather than as a bullet list. Logical Presentation of the case will be an essential consideration. This Report should
be posted to the Case
Presentation Assignment folder.
The Presentation must contain enough facts &
information to prepare the
Second and Third Parts below.
Review the requirements of Parts 2 & 3
before submitting your Case
For the current events Reports, where you
discuss a case and analyze it, you were
asked to discuss deterrence measures. For this
Case Presentation, that is not
necessary. You are simply explaining the details
about the case. This is, you might say,
the background for the second and third phases
of this assignment.
Investigative Project Design: Part 2
This aspect of the three-part assignment will
relate to the case you described. Assume you are a fraud examiner
available for hire.
Approach: Provide a discussion of
the approach you, as an investigator, would use to look into a lead received
about the possible fraud. The discussion should include several steps and
indicate what documents you anticipate will be
available and essential during your investigation, whether
interviews of individuals will be involved, who those individuals might be, and how you might analyze the collected information.
Actions: Assume you have received
a general lead, but not all of the facts you laid out in your case presentation. Think through what type of actions may have
occurred or might be taking place during your investigation. What
records might be an excellent source to
investigate the situation? Oral evidence through
interviews of individuals can be helpful, but documents are
necessary to confirm oral evidence. How can you relate oral evidence to documents you expect to find? Investigative Design: This investigative
design can be provided in prose or narrative writing or a clearly defined numbered list. For those with an audit background, this
list would be much like
an audit program–a sequential list showing a
supervisor the expected path you anticipate the
investigation to take. The Investigative Design can be posted as a
separate document to the Investigative. Project Design
assignment folder in LEO or as a single document below your Case Presentation
paragraphs. If you follow the latter approach, you will be able to view both the case description and your proposed investigative approach in
the same document. This might be one-half to one page of narrative.
Although not limited, a step-by-step list
would probably include no more than ten steps
for most cases. When the submitted Investigative Design
documents are reviewed, only the section about the investigation will be reviewed and graded if posted with the case design.
A word of caution here! If a list of steps is
provided, there needs to be enough wording that a reader can understand what
actions you plan to take during the investigation. This is
about explaining how you plan to pursue this fraud to a supervisor. If approving your plan, a supervisor would be
committing your organization to spend the
funds to support your efforts and the related
expenses. Professionalism in this submission is essential.
References and in-text citations are appropriate
for this part of the three-part assignment. These sources fortify the merit of
your approach to the case and often provide insights into
the suitability of your approach to a specific case.
Part 2 is a separate document from Part 1 but it
is requested that you add Part 2 Investigative Design to
Part 1 Case Presentation before submitting to the Dropbox. Thus, the Instructor
can refer to your Case while reviewing your Investigative Design.
Deterrence Measure Design: Part 3
Considering the case you presented and the
investigative design you offered, what deterrence measures
would you suggest to the enterprise you described in your case presentation?
Your suggestions will be considered in being
both realistic and responsive to the specific Presentation
you provided.
This review of deterrence measures should be
written in narrative form. For most cases, the deterrence measures
will probably require no more than one full page of text. Post a document with your Case Presentation, Investigative Project
Design, and
Deterrence Measure Design to the Assignments
folder identified for the Deterrence Measure Design. Part 32 is a separate document from Parts 1 & 2 but it is
requested that you add Part 3 Deterrence Measure Design to Part 1 Case
Presentation and part 2 Investigative
Design before submitting to the Dropbox. Thus,
the Instructor can refer to your Case and Investigative Design
while reviewing your Deterrence Measure Design.
Parts 1, 2 and 3 are related
You will be able to see the sequence in a single
document as you develop and offer a description of fraud
based on your readings and understanding of that type of case. You will see your plan to approach the fraud you outlined, including
what complexities might be involved. Then, you will have offered
suggestions for how the described fraud could be deterred with
systematic changes in policies and procedures within the organization you described. Review of the deterrence measure design aspect of
the assignment and grading will be limited to that aspect of the
posted document.
References and in-text citations are appropriate
for this part of the three-part assignment. These sources fortify the merit of
your suggestions and often provide insights about the right
revisions to address the issues relevant to a specific case
