Description

Not yet a CPA, Mike left a small CPA firm to become the controller of a private company that manufactured supplements. Concerned about the sales practices, he thought his accounting methods were harmless fixes to the company’s growing pains - but the judge disagreed. The fraud was so outrageous that it was featured on CNBC’s hit show “American Greed.” Learn all about his story through this interview conducted by Gary Zeune, CPA MAcct. This event may be a rebroadcast of a live event and the instructor will be available to answer your questions during the event. NOTE FOR OHIO CPAS: The Accountancy Board of Ohio has approved this course for 2 hours of credit towards the required professional standards to renew your CPA license. It does NOT qualify for new licenses. Gary Zeune is an approved ethics instructor at www.acc.ohio.gov/CPE/PSR.aspx
