The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (2016) indicates that asset misappropriation is the most common form of occupational fraud. Based upon a real company, this case contains six frauds: collusions, commissions, fictitious sales, rebates, refunds, and write-offs. It also includes several asset misappropriation (e.g., theft of cash, misuse of inventory, and fraudulent reimbursement) schemes. Furthermore, four of the six frauds are not found in other published case studies. The case seeks to enhance learning by having students (1) examine multiple fraudulent schemes within a single company, (2) identify frauds after examining firm procedures and documents, (3) suggest applicable fraud protection procedures, (4) identify internal control weaknesses, and (5) apply the fraud triangle. Undergraduate and graduate students from two universities performed well on the case.
