International Fraud Awareness Week Less Than One Month Away


Scott Patterson
ACFE Media Relations Specialist

This year, International Fraud Awareness Week, Nov. 6-12, couldn’t come at a better time. With the largest identity fraud case in U.S. history busted last week and companies like Solyndra committing alleged financial statement fraud, the need for fraud awareness is stronger than ever. I encourage you to take the initiative to make an impact during the week, whether by hosting fraud awareness training for your employees, posting articles on your website and social media, or teaming with local media to highlight the problem of fraud.

Any organization can get involved – it doesn’t cost anything to sign up, and the ACFE shares resources with all of the official supporters to help them in their anti-fraud activities. Every year on we post downloadable resources, including the Fraud Prevention Check-up, Fraud IQ Quiz and educational presentations focused on fraud prevention and detection.

Here is a sneak peek at a few of the free resources you can use this year:
