General Info

Description
*Qualifies for Yellow Book CPE credit* "Newspaper Materiality"... It's not pretty when the media splashes a fraud on the front page that CPAs missed. Sallah is a Pulitzer Prize winning investigative reporter for the Miami Herald. He will provide a detailed analysis of major financial fraud and abuse cases and show you how and why something `immaterial' often leads to finding material fraud. This event may be a rebroadcast of a live event and the instructor will be available to answer your questions either during or after the event.
Highlights
CPAs can protect themselves by learning how to think about risk from a business perspective. Sallah will share how he investigated 5 fascinating fraud cases:

  • Allen Stanford's $7 billion offshore banking Ponzi scheme and the lawsuit against the auditors
  • Martin Frankel, the fugitive financier who looted insurance companies of $200 million
  • David Mobley, the Florida hedge fund manager who fleeced investors of $75 million
  • George Theodule, the affinity fraud artist who stole millions from South Florida's Haitian community
  • Florida mortgage fraud: a case study in why CPAs cannot rely on regulators
Objectives
