This course provides students with a knowledge of some specific types of commercial fraud and abuse, including asset misappropriation, falsified statements, corruption, and conflict of interest. Characteristics of each type of abuse, as well as indicators, detection, and prevention, will be covered. Specialized topics, such as anti-competitive offences, risks involved in foreign operations, due diligence requirements, and anti-money-laundering and antiterrorism legislation are also canvassed. Topics of particular interest to investigators will be the use of computers in the detection of fraud, the conduct of internal (corporate) investigations, and the remedies available to organizations that have been victimized by commercial crime. The orientation of the course will be toward those who have responsibility for the prevention, detection, and investigation of commercial crime in a corporate/private-sector context. It will be of particular interest to students who are employed, or who may be considering a career, in the private sector, in an area such as security, internal audit, quality control, or risk management.
