Recommended Prerequisite: Working knowledge of fraud and fraud schemes; some understanding of white-collar crime
Field of Study: Behavioral Ethics
This session begins with a discussion of Edwin Sutherland’s 1939 description of white-collar criminality and how applicable the concept remains today. It will delve into the ethics and psychology of white-collar criminals using case studies and analysis of fraudsters’ character and motivations. Models of criminology, along with the roles that narcissism, sociopathy and greed play in fraud are addressed. The session will include excerpts from ACFE video interviews with Roomy Khan and Nathan Mueller, along with an interview of “Pharma Bro” Martin Shkreli — three convicted fraudsters who illustrate important clues to finding and preventing fraud.
