♥ Book Title : Fraud
☯ Full Synopsis : "The United States has always proved an inviting home for boosters, sharp dealers, and outright swindlers. Worship of entrepreneurial freedom has complicated the task of distinguishing aggressive salesmanship from unacceptable deceit, especially on the frontiers of innovation. At the same time, competitive pressures have often nudged respectable firms to embrace deception. As a result, fraud has been a key feature of American business since its beginnings. In this sweeping narrative, Edward Balleisen traces the history of fraud in America—and the evolving efforts to combat it—from the age of P. T. Barnum through the eras of Charles Ponzi and Bernie Madoff. Starting with an early nineteenth-century American legal world of "buyer beware," this unprecedented account describes the slow, piecemeal construction of modern regulatory institutions to protect consumers and investors, from the Gilded Age through the New Deal and the Great Society. It concludes with the more recent era of deregulation, which has brought with it a spate of costly frauds, including the savings and loan crisis, corporate accounting scandals, and the recent mortgage-marketing debacle. By tracing how Americans have struggled to foster a vibrant economy without enabling a corrosive level of fraud, this book reminds us that American capitalism rests on an uneasy foundation of social trust."Article| Edward J. Balleisen| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Fraud: The Counter Fraud Practitioner's Handbook looks at fraud investigation methods and explores the practical options for preventing and remedying fraud. An effective fraud and financial crime strategy involves intelligence and prevention, criminal and civil legal procedures, and asset recovery, all of which may involve investigators, internal auditors, security managers, in-house and external legal counsel and advisors.

♥ Book Title : Serious Fraud and Current Issues
☯ Full Synopsis : "Fraud is big business and it rots the fabric of finance and accountancy, as it is exercised by all day trading of bonds, junk bonds, loans. Twenty-five years ago, fraud was said to be rapidly expanding and manifests itself by shady deals, fraudulently converted cash. Fraudsters who are active, especially electronic fraud, do in fact treat the use of fraud as serious "business" and the execution of frauds as "work", much as other criminals treat their activities as their "job"! Identity theft poses a frightening thought of being taken in by crooks. If twenty-five years ago it was estimated that the amount of fraudulent cash around the world at any one time more than equaled the Gross National Products of several third-world countries, it would not be believed-a damning indictment indeed. In this fascinating and comprehensive study on Fraud the author takes advantage of the fact that people seem thrilled to hear about frauds, like murders. She has prepared works that will use the readers' attention to discuss law enforcement and the consequences of breaking the law by committing frauds."Article| Sally Ramage| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Americans consume almost 5 billion pounds of seafood. Most seafood buyers, at many levels -- importers, dist., supermarkets, restaurants, and individual consumers -- assume that the seafood they buy is what the seller claims it is.

Three fed. agencies play key roles in detecting and preventing seafood fraud: Customs and Border Protection, the Nat. Marine Fisheries Service, and the FDA. This report determines: (1) the actions key fed. agencies take to help detect and prevent seafood fraud; and (2) the extent to which these key fed. agencies collaborate with each other to help detect and prevent seafood fraud.

♥ Book Title : Broken Promises
☯ Full Synopsis : "As the costs of medical care have skyrocketed, so has the amount of money lost to fraudulent health insurance providers. These bogus operations typically victimize individuals on the lower end of the socioeconomic scale who then face staggering medical bills without coverage. Robert Tillman shows how market conditions and weak regulatory structures have allowed these crimes to occur, and cites recent institutional and legal changes that have created both new demands for insurance and greater opportunities for fraud. He also analyzes the political and economic climate that enables these criminal practices to flourish. Drawing on court documents, congressional hearings, and actual cases, Tillman provides numerous examples of the three most prevalent forms of fraud: scams involving multiple employer welfare arrangements, employee leasing schemes, and fictitious labor unions. He also examines recent innovations in insurance fraud such as "24-hour plans" and coverage offered by dubious religious organizations. With the regulation of health insurance currently in chaos, Broken Promises offers a critical examination of this insidious form of white-collar crime. It is a timely book that raises important questions about the definition of insurance and consumer protection."Article| Robert Tillman| Statement ..."
