Tracing and Recovering Fraud losses

Course Code: IFIS/SCA/F004

About this Course

After a fraud case has been successfully been solved and the perpetrators convicted, most victims of the fraud believe they have had closure; but that is not true. A fraud investigation only ends after the losses caused by that fraud have been recovered. This is what this course is all about.
Recovering fraud losses is crucial to resolving the fraudulent crime, and it is often intricate due to fraud’s characteristically stealthy nature. Fraud examiners must be prepared to deal with the strategic, organizational, investigative and legal challenges of tracing and recovering the hidden proceeds of fraud.

There is a number of tools that a fraud examiner can use to trace illegitimate funds and recover hidden assets. This training course provides an overview of the resources, legal considerations and techniques to prepare for and conduct an asset recovery examination.
