With this insider's look at financial statement fraud, Financial Statement Fraud Casebook presents firsthand accounts—some from accountants, some from auditors, all members of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE), the world's largest anti-fraud organization—of how financial statement fraud was first suspected, then investigated, then finally exposed in organizations of every kind and size.

With cases hand-picked and edited by Dr. Joseph T. Wells, the founder and Chairman of the ACFE and author of Corporate Fraud Handbook, this collection of revealing case studies sheds clear insights into the dark corners of financial statement fraud and is essential for those charged with the responsibility of fraud prevention within their organizations.

Praise for Financial Statement Fraud Casebook: Baking the Ledgers and Cooking the Books

"A must-read for anyone who needs another reason to realize how important 'tone at the top' is. This is a well written book full of great case studies. Each case lays out the facts and lists the recommendations to help prevent the same fraud from reoccurring in the future. The importance of being proactive in implementing sound internal controls is shown in each case."
Bryan L. Hines, CPA, CFE

"This book reminds me of Sherlock Holmes and Agatha Christie stories, which once you start, it's almost impossible to put down without reading the whole book. A good case book which challenges your belief that you have seen it all."
Charanjeet Singh Bhatia, CFE

"If we have learned anything from the past, it is that you cannot legislate ethics. These case studies remind us that the fraud triangle still applies. Good controls are only of value if well conceived. Part of good controls is independent verification that they are not being circumvented."
Philip C. Levi, CFE, FCA, CPA/CFF, CA-IFA
