Essentials Of Corporate Fraud, By Tracy Coenen

Question: Who is the intended audience?
Answer: Business owners, executives, managers, attorneys, and auditors.

Q: What is the book about?
A: In order to effectively fight fraud, it is important to understand who commits fraud, why they do it, how they do it, and how it affects the company as a whole. Essentials of Corporate Fraud is more than a primer on fraud detection and prevention. It is a real-world look at how fraud occurs from an expert who has investigated hundreds of internal frauds, including embezzlement, financial statement fraud, investment fraud, bribery, and corruption.

Q: Why are you the best person to write this book?
A: My depth of experience investigating fraud makes me uniquely qualified to write this book. I’ve taken the knowledge I’ve gathered from fraud schemes perpetrated by a variety of white collar criminals, and used it to give readers a practical look at how fraud occurs and what they can do about it. Who better to instruct them on detecting and preventing fraud than someone who digs into the details of corporate fraud daily?

Q: How is this book different from other books on this topic?
A: This book is much more practical than other fraud books on the market. It’s an easy read, enhanced with discussions of real-world fraud cases and sidebars highlighting key concepts. The information can be digested quickly so the reader can put the knowledge to use right away.

Q: Is there anything else we should know about this book?
A: A couple of comments from readers of the book:

The only thing better than Tracy Coenen’s skills as a forensic accountant and fraud investigator is her ability to reduce her real life experiences to writing. Tracy stands out as the only one who has ever been able to make the boring, dry subject of accounting fraud both entertaining and informative. She actually provides the reader who may possess little knowledge of the subject with a literal “how to uncover” fraud methodology. In short, Tracy Coenen is ZZZZ Best fraud investigator.”

Barry Minkow
Co-Founder of Fraud Discovery Institute

“Essentials of Corporate Fraud is unique among fraud books in that it provides decision-makers who aren’t fraud experts with exactly the kind of “brass tacks” knowledge they need to meaningfully reduce their organizations’ vulnerability to such crimes as embezzlement, fraudulent financial reporting, bribery, corruption and collusion. No fancy financial or accounting language. No convoluted theorizing about why fraud happens. Just well-founded actionable insight and advice on how to detect, prevent and investigate fraud—from someone who’s been helping organizations protect themselves against white-collar crime for many years.”
