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 during 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
