Combatting Casino Fraud with
Forensic Accounting

Your casino could be losing tens of thousands of dollars due to fraud, and you might never know it! Even if you're undergoing regular audits, fraud can still happen right under your nose.

In this important new class, we’ll show you how you can use forensic accounting and data analysis to recognize the red flags of fraud, and what the proper response is once you think you’ve uncovered something suspicious. You’ll learn what the differences and similarities are between a financial statement audit, fraud audit, forensic investigation and internal controls audit. Plus you’ll examine case studies to see how real-life fraud was detected, who the players were, and what the investigation process involved.

Don’t miss out on this chance to learn how to channel your inner detective--and potentially save your tribe tens of thousands of dollars or more!
