♥ Book Title : Fraud
☯ Full Synopsis : "A frequent contributor to the New York Times magazine, Outside, Salon, and GQ, and a regular on Public Radio International's "This American Life,"David Rakoff's debut collection of essays is simultaneously laugh-out-loud funny and take-your-breath-away poignant. David Rakoff is a fish out of water. Whether he finds himself on assignment climbing Mount Monadnock in New Hampshire — donning a pair of Timberlands for his trek, only to realize with horror that "the shoes I wouldn't be caught dead in might actually turn out to be the shoes I am caught dead in." — sitting quietly impersonating Sigmund Freud in a department store window...for a month, or musing on the unique predicament of being undetectably Canadian in New York City ("...what's more spicy than being Canadian, I ask you?"), Rakoff has a gift for exposing life's humour and pathos. Fraud takes us places even we didn't know we wanted to go: expeditions as varied as a search for elves in Iceland, a foray into soap opera acting, or contemplating the gin-soaked olive at the bottom of a martini glass. With the sharpest of eyes, David Rakoff explores the odd and ordinary events of life, spotting what is unique, funny and absurd in the world around him. But for all its razor-sharp wit and snarky humor, Fraud is also, ultimately, an object lesson in not taking life, or oneself, too seriously. From the Hardcover edition."Article| David Rakoff| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Fraud
☯ Full Synopsis : "From This American Life alum David Rakoff comes a hilarious collection that single-handedly raises self-deprecation to an art form. Whether impersonating Sigmund Freud in a department store window during the holidays, climbing an icy mountain in cheap loafers, or learning primitive survival skills in the wilds of New Jersey, Rakoff clearly demonstrates how he doesn’t belong–nor does he try to. In his debut collection of essays, Rakoff uses his razor-sharp wit and snarky humor to deliver a barrage of damaging blows that, more often than not, land squarely on his own jaw–hilariously satirizing the writer, not the subject. Joining the wry and the heartfelt, Fraud offers an object lesson in not taking life, or ourselves, too seriously."Article| David Rakoff| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Fraud
☯ 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. Your strategy depends on the outcomes you are seeking, the nature of the fraud or crime committed and the countries involved. Fraud provides a clear picture of the role of compliance, civil and criminal legal process in any fraud strategy. Chapters then cover investigation strategies for each of the following types of fraud: benefit, health, procurement, employee, telecoms, fiscal, corporate, charity, legal and accounting. Part Three explores the practical options for fraud prevention and remediation, including both civil and criminal asset recovery. This is an essential reference for both public and private sector fraud and security specialists who need to understand the strengths and weaknesses of each element of their organization's strategy against fraud and are seeking to learn from the approach of their colleagues in other industries or organizations. Written by and for practitioners, it is a handbook that deals with the knowledge, detail and the craft that underpins all effective anti-fraud work."Article| Alan Doig| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Fraud
☯ Full Synopsis : "While fraud is generally associated with the business world, this book demonstrates that there is also a good deal of fraud and deception among scientists, writers and philanthropists. Scientists will sometimes announce fraudulent findings in order to raise money for additional research projects. Since many scientists live by this "soft" money and have no other income, the temptation to claim results that never occurred is great. Likewise, authors and journalists may commit fraud by claiming that they saw something that they did not see or that an event occurred which never happened. There are also writers who steal the work of others and publish such material under their own name. There are executives of charitable organizations who steal the money donated to a charitable cause and there are clergy who steal from the members of their own parish, or sell objects that do not belong to them. Some members of the clergy use their trusted office to gain sexual favors from congregants while others entertain their friends at the expense of their congregations. This work is well documented and demonstrates that the notion of the aloof scientists or holy clergy may be no more than a myth, and that even in these professions all things are not what they seem."Article| Gerhard Falk| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : How to Detect Construction Fraud
☯ Full Synopsis : "For every dollar spent on Time and Material (T&M) jobs, the contractor can recover all of his d costs plus all of his indirect overhead cost plus fees (profits). If all costs are recovered plus a fee, the contractor has little incentive to save the owner's money and expedite the work in the most prudent manner. The longer the project is delayed, the longer the contractor's equipment can be rented, the more field office staff can be billed, and the more overtime that is worked all contributes to more profits. Construction sites are more prone to fraud, over-billing, and lack of controls than typical businesses. Through proper construction oversight, there should be monitoring, accountability, and transparency for all transactions. There are two simple rules to follow: Rule Number 1: Never Assume Anything! There has to be a reason when the contractor fails to provide required documentation such as staff salary component details, purchase orders, equipment lists, or contracts with subcontractors. Perhaps the missing documentation shows charges to a different project that should not have been billed to this owner. Perhaps the staff salary components have hidden markups included in the rate in addition to the contractual fees. Perhaps the missing Purchase Order is a Lease-Purchase Option for equipment rentals with ownership of the item going to the contractor at the end of the lease but paid for by the owner. The reviewer should always question why something doesn't look right. Rule Number 2: Everything is Negotiable. Disputes often arise during a large construction project because of ambiguity in the contract terminology. The contract is the "Meeting of the Minds" of both parties throughout the project. An interpretation is often called for as to "What was the original intent of the contract language?" When every detail is not spelled out in the contract, there should be a reasonableness test applied. The contractor is acting as agent for the owner to complete the project prudently and expeditiously. If an equipment item can be rented for $1,000 per month or $600 per week and the length of rental is unknown, is it prudent to enter into a lease that costs the most ($1,000 per month versus $2,400 per month after 4 weeks)? The purpose of this book is to provide Government Agencies, Public and Private Project Owners, Certified Public Accountants, Construction Auditors, and Invoice Reviewers the tools needed to detect and dispute overcharges as well as provide guidance for Project Controls. Audit tools listed in this book will help detect unethical billing practices for any Agency or Company reimbursing contractors for craft labor, staff labor, material invoices, rental company invoices, or sub-tier-contractor invoices. The author recovered over $7 million overcharged by contractors and subcontractors on one project using techniques in this book. One significant audit finding could recover several thousand dollars of excess contractor profits and would justify the small investment in this book. WHY CONSTRUCTION AUDITING? Most owners of large projects, such as utilities or refineries, are not staffed for large maintenance or construction projects even though they always seem to be building or modifying their facilities. Projects can be short lived and the owners don't need a permanent staff for specific projects where the employees cannot be reassigned after job completion. They rely on contractors to execute the work acting as the owner's agent, gather the necessary documents to request their monthly reimbursement, and provide one accurate invoice for payment. The owner processes the bill as they would any other bill with perhaps a cursory review of the summary, a math verification of totals and some cross matching of labor rates, equipment rental rates, etc. Rarely is an in-depth review performed by a unique department such as Construction Audit but by the Accounts Payable Department.

♥ Book Title : Seafood Fraud
☯ Full Synopsis : "In 2007, Americans consumed 5 billion pounds of seafood. Most seafood buyers -- importers, distributors, supermarkets, restaurants, and individual consumers -- assume that the seafood they buy is what the seller claims it is.

Three federal 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.
