Learning Goal: I’m working on a business question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
In our readings thus far, we have read about the role of auditors, both internal and external. We have also seen some discussion about the difference between a traditional financial audit and a fraud, or forensic audit. In addition, we have had discussions from Chapters 2 and 3 about various fraud theories and the motivations behind fraud. We have explored evidence and identifying signs of deception.
One of the more “colorful” fraud perpetrators in recent years is Barry Minkow, of ZZZZ Best infamy, among other things. Without going into detail, Mr. Minkow has had a very colorful history stretching from the 1980’s to today. To give you a good flavor of his history, I have gathered the following list of resources that tell some of his story. Please start with the video “Cooking the Books” that can be found under M1 Videos. (I realize the video is a bit dated, but the content and observations are still timely). After watching the video, review the other items below and any additional research that you care to do to understand his story.
Once you have a good understanding of his story over the years, please post a ½ to one-page summary exploring Barry and his colorful history, specifically focused on your observations of his story and what you, as a potential forensic accountant/fraud examiner, can most learn from his story.
Following your initial post (please post your initial post by Tuesday to allow your classmates time to respond), please interact, discuss, and debate freely with your classmates with at least three substantive responses to other posts. I am truly interested in getting your perspectives that explore the breadth of subject areas we have covered thus far. The content of our discussion is fairly wide open; however, consider any one or more of the following areas to discuss:
