Your objective is to apply the fraud examination concepts and objectives learned in this course to a real-life fraud case.
Guidelines Frauds are reported in local and national newspapers on an almost daily basis. Please consider several resources, and research any notable fraud case to address the topics noted below.
Then, please write an analysis (2,000–3,500 words) that analyzes this fraud in relation to the course material. Your paper should be submitted as an APA-formatted Word document (and the cover and reference pages are not included in the word count).
In your paper, you should
describe and analyze how the fraud was executed; identify and briefly discuss the role of the parties that were involved as perpetrators, accomplices, victims, tipsters, observers, and so forth (preferably in a chart or illustration) [include Jeffry Picower]; assess the motives (or possible motives, if not reported) of each perpetrator; identify controls that might have deterred or prevented the fraud from occurring; discuss any involvement of the SEC; document how the fraud was discovered and investigated, including what should have been identified as red flags; discuss the resolution of this case; and cite and reference any articles, other texts, journals, websites, or so forth that you used as a source for the facts in your paper. NOTE: Avoid Wikipedia, because it is not recognized as a credible, authoritative source. Be sure to review the grading rubric below so you can earn the maximum number of points (including proper APA citations and a references page).
