Book description
The second edition of Fraud Detection: A Revealing Look at Fraud by David G. Coderre reinforces this book's reputation as a must-have item for auditors and fraud investigators.

The original edition first appeared in 1999, and soon became a classic. Coderre's step-by-step approach to using data analysis tools, supplemented by more than 60 lively case studies, has been read and appreciated by thousands of auditors. Cases examined include:
- Employee scams such as theft of inventory, forged checks, diversion of cash payments, abuse of expense accounts, and incorrect hours worked.
- Computer-based frauds and errors such as "ghost" employees, phony vendors, non-existent phone services, and incorrect costing routines.
- Management-level schemes including phony insurance policies, kickbacks, bid rigging, and violations of signing authority.

Coderre is particularly strong and compelling on the subject of ratio analysis and related digital analysis techniques for detecting what he calls "known and unknown symptoms of fraud" - subtle anomalies that can help identify a fraud in its early stages. This second edition, published by Ekaros Analytical, reflects nearly five years of additional fraud investigation experience, with revised and expanded text and new features.

- New and revised case studies including expanded emphasis on the challenges of data access, data integrity, and sampling.
- Examples now illustrated using IDEA, ACL, and Excel software.
- A new appendix showing the use of the Fraud Investigation Plan.
- Review of the impact of Sarbanes-Oxley and new audit standards.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0470128836, Hardcover)

A university edition of the Corporate Fraud Handbook, this book has been created to provide the most authoritative treatment available on Fraud Accounting. Like no other book on fraud, this book explains fraud schemes used by employees, owners, managers, and executives to defraud their customers and illustrates each scheme with real-life case studies submitted to the ACFE by actual fraud examiners who aided in the case resolutions. It shows the reader how to spot the "red flags" of fraud, how to comply with recent regulations including Sarbanes-Oxley, and how to develop and implement effective preventative measures.
