You are required to complete a research paper based on a specific fraud or type of fraud. My preference is for the paper to discuss a fraud that you are familiar with (i.e.: happened where you have worked or have personal knowledge of). The paper should be approximately two to three pages long with a bibliography (if appropriate). The paper should have an introductory paragraph and reach a concluding paragraph that highlights the purpose of the paper and the point(s) to remember). Include prevention or detection procedures learned within this course that may have prevented, detected or mitigated the fraud you have described. It should not be just a reiteration of material in the lectures or articles.
If you are aware of a fraud that you have knowledge of, that will work. If not, pick any fraud topic that you found of interest this semester and use that as your topic. Please tie in preventive measures that we have covered this semester.
