Press Release Body: Newark DE— Although no one likes to admit this could happen in their organization, fraud will occur in virtually every organization at some time or another. In a survey conducted specifically for this new book, an eye-popping 87% of the readers of Accounts Payable Now & Tomorrow (www.ap-now.com) indicated they had experienced fraud in their operations in the last 10 years. This eye-popping statistic is confirmed by a second study. In a recent PriceWaterhouseCooper survey very high level executives were asked about fraud. A startling 43% said they had experienced a significant fraud in their operations in the last three years.
This is an issue no organization can afford to ignore, says Mary Schaeffer, author of the newly-published Fraud in Accounts Payable and editorial director for the respected newsletter, Accounts Payable Now & Tomorrow. It is the elephant-in-the-room issue for companies of all sizes, she notes. It addresses all sorts of payment fraud issues including some not typically addressed in books on fraud. These include Telecom fraud, spreadsheet fraud and fraud using the master vendor file. In addition the topics of check fraud, p-card fraud, e-payment fraud, travel and entertainment fraud, vendor fraud, employee fraud, invoice fraud and petty cash fraud are dissected.
The book is filled with statistics that will make your hair stand up, over 50 real life examples of fraud that occurred in various accounts payable functions along with best practice advice on how to prevent, deter and detect fraud in the accounts payable operations of any organization.
