Subject: Interviewing Essentials and Mindset of a Fraudster
Once a fraud scandal goes public, the “what, when, where and how” become a matter of public record. But what about the “why”? What drives these individuals to lie, cheat and swindle? Understanding the path a fraudster takes from employee to criminal can provide valuable insight that can help strengthen your anti-fraud initiatives and make your fraud examinations more successful. Through discussions of human behavior, video interviews with convicted fraudsters and interactive problem-solving, you will gain a deeper understanding of motivations and personality traits common to many fraudsters.
