Minimize the Impact of Fraud During International Fraud Awareness Week


Mandy Moody, ACFE Social Media Specialist

As the ACFE’s social media specialist, there is not a day, or should I say hour, that goes by that I do not read a tweet, Facebook post, LinkedIn discussion or blog headline about a new fraud arrest, conviction or indictment. For some this could be discouraging, but for me, it is only a reminder of the significant work the ACFE and fraud fighters around the world do every day, or should I say every hour, to prevent and detect fraudulent activity.

There has never been a more important time to shine a spotlight on fraud. While fraud is a year-round concern, organizations can focus on this issue with their employees, clients and the public during International Fraud Awareness Week, Nov. 7-13, 2010.

This weeklong campaign encourages business leaders and employees to proactively take steps to minimize the impact of fraud by promoting anti-fraud awareness and education.

Here are a few suggestions from the ACFE on how you can promote International Fraud Awareness Week:

In addition to social media tweets and posts, the ACFE will be blogging every day next week with special Fraud Week updates and resources. Stay tuned!
