+    Who Commits Fraud and Their Methods 2 Online $24.99 View

Many people consider accounting a tedious job, but not John Lewis. Throughout his three-year tenure with Unified Trucking he had ostensibly been a model employee, missing only a few days of work and conquering the Herculean task of bookkeeping single-handedly. The company’s continued growth and profitability were the only indications management had ever needed to determine that John performed his job well. His professionalism and dedication made supervision unnecessary. John insisted on handling any problems or discrepancies personally, and made it clear that the buck stopped with him.

In fact, many bucks did stop with him, followed him home and neatly deposited themselves into his bank account. In three short years John managed to use his authority and exclusive bookkeeping access to bilk the company of nearly $100,000. As often happens, John’s illicit activities were only revealed by accident. If janitorial workers had not discovered a suspicious amount of discarded receipts, the theft would have continued undetected.

+    Accountants Wanted 3 Online $33.99 View

An increase in the number of businesses, changing financial laws and regulations, and greater scrutiny of company finances will drive faster-than-average growth of accountants and auditors, ” reports the Department of Labor (DOL). In addition, in response to recent accounting scandals, new Federal legislation restricts the nonauditing services that public accountants can provide to clients. If an accounting firm audits a client’s financial statements, that same firm cannot provide advice on human resources, technology, investment banking, or legal matters, although accountants may still advise on tax issues, such as establishing a tax shelter. This requires the client in most cases to hire two separate firms to handle their annual accounting and financial services needs.
