Course Description

Governmental entities are the second-largest victims of embezzlement.  This seminar examines recent events involving the theft of public money and the circumstances that allowed the fraud to occur.  Case studies we will examine include the 2012 $54 million embezzlement from the City of Dixon by Rita Crundwell.   The events that impacted the small Illinois town of 16,000 residents was the largest governmental fraud case to date and spanned an astonishing 20 years.  This remarkable story inspired an award-winning documentary, “All the Queen’s Horses.”  We will also be examining the factors that led to the scandals involving the Baptist Foundation of Arizona, World Com, Collin Street Bakery and the Ohio American Cancer Society, among others.  


Learning Objectives: 


  • Understand the factors that create an environment for fraud to easily occur.

  • Identify areas where there could be an inadvertent failure to separate duties.

  • Ascertain the proper role of an external auditor and identify areas where independence can be compromised.
