The ACFE, the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, reports that there are eight main behavioral indicators of fraud, often called “red flags.” 85% of fraudsters exhibited at least one of the behavioral indicators prior to being caught. Having an understanding and being on the lookout for these behavioral indicators can lead to more fraud being uncovered more often. Internal audit only uncovers about 16% of frauds and external audit only 4%. While detecting fraud is not internal audit's primary purpose, knowing the behavioral indicators can lead to early detection and a decrease in damages from fraud schemes. In this course we review the eight behavioral indicators and search tips both digitally and in person with practical applications to do so
