Fraud prevention strategies on different types of corporate fraud
2011 (English)Conference paper, Abstract (Refereed)
An increase in the number of corporate scandals due to fraud indicate a pressing need for fraud to be dealt with effectively. The current study attempts to match fraud prevention strategies to specific types of fraud by incorporating the perceptions of professional practitioners and regulators actively involved in preventing fraud in private, public, government and nonprofit sectors. The study will enable them to better understand the different types of strategies needed in handling each unique category of fraud. The findings shall be beneficial for organizations that wish to develop effective fraud prevention strategies by enabling the process of matching fraud prevention strategies with different types of fraud. This study will provide prescriptive information to accounting practitioners, internal auditors, external auditors and fraud examiners ultimately enabling organizations to effectively deal with fraud and improve safeguards against fraud.
