The Financial Times (14.09.00) reported that 40 per cent of all internet purchases from retailers are fraudulent and that the problem is spiralling out of control. In the workplace, too, fraud is on the rise.The average company loses between 2 and 5 per cent of its turnover each year to fraud - and the risk to businesses of falling victim to some form of corporate fraud is almost 100 per cent. Yet most companies do little if anything about it - and if they do, their actions tend to frustrate police efforts.

This new book provides a step-by-step guide to detecting fraud and sets out the most effective counter-measures you can take. Written for the non-specialist, Corporate Fraud puts solid forensic accounting skills into plain English, making the title an important addition to the library of any Accountant or Finance Director.
