How to be a Successful Frauditor (0470681853) cover image
This book shows how anyone who finds they need to investigate a fraud at work can conduct a successful investigation and maximise their chances of recovering stolen money. Drawing on the experiences of the author, including his role in a number of high profile cases at two organisations at the heart of government, the Treasury and the Metropolitan Police, the book is peppered with real life examples and case studies of the ‘frauditor’s’ experiences, and lessons learned the hard way including the cases of:

• The linguist who was lost for words

• Doctoring the suits at the hospital

• A magician at work

• Corporate credit cards for cops

Readable, and written to de-bunk the mysteries of fraud investigation, this book includes interactive case studies to develop the reader’s skills in effective fraud detection and investigation.
