PRAISE FOR Fraud Auditing and Forensic Accounting, Third Edition

"An excellent primer for developing and implementing an antifraud program as part of a SOX 404, fraud prevention and detection process. A clear and concise history of fraud and the methods needed to deter it now and for the future. It is like having a professor on call and in your office when you need one. Well written with easy-to-understand definitions and examples, this is a must-read for anyone who is putting a financial investigation unit in place."
—George Mullins, CFE, HealthSouthInternal Audit Manager and Project Manager, Antifraud Program

"The book is an excellent anti-fraud resource for those professionals charged with the responsibility of detecting, investigating, and preventing fraud. I also highly recommend it to educators as a prospective textbook for a semester-long course in macro fraud examination."
—Thomas Buckhoff, PhD, CPA, CFE, Associate Professor of Forensic Accounting, Georgia Southern University, and Principal, FraudWise, LLC

"This book, better than any other in print, hits the subject areas I cover in my fraud examination and forensic accounting class. The authors have done a great job of presenting complicated terms and techniques in a manner for students to understand. I particularly like the presentation of a fraud's endgame, namely the court case that recovers assets and puts these creeps in jail."
—Douglas E. Ziegenfuss, Professor and Chair, Department of Accounting,Old Dominion University

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"…look at the expanded scope that fraud and other white collar crimes have taken on in the business landscape, attributed in part to the pervasiveness of computerized accounting systems, the World Wide Web, the occurrence of large-scale frauds such as Enron and WorldCom, which requires financial accountants to provide a new level of assertion as to the veracity of a company's financial records." (Strategic Finance, April 2009)
