The Process of Discovering and Eliminating Embezzlements and Controlling the Steps that may turn you into one

Millions of dollars are lost each year to embezzlements in small towns and businesses across the country. While each embezzlement is unique, you can study a particular embezzlement to understand the situation that gave rise to the fraud and ascertain the methods used in confronting and discovering it. That will offer you valuable insights into how you can successfully discover and eliminate embezzlements on your own.

This program by expert speaker Carl Stephani will give you an understanding of the very simple, but devious steps that can turn an otherwise law-abiding citizen into an embezzler, and how embezzlement can be sensed and finally discovered. It will also give you a concrete example of how embezzlement can be handled to most effectively bring all parties involved to justice and rehabilitation.

Session Highlights:

  • Warning signs that show there could be an embezzlement operating in your municipality or business.
  • Learn to confidentially confirm the operation of an embezzlement.
  • Learn how an embezzlement was recognized, secretly initiated and developed with a real case example.
  • Learn how an embezzlement in a highly political atmosphere was exposed and terminated.
  • Understand how far one common embezzlement scheme extended and how it was handled by local, state and federal authorities.

  • Students and Professors of public administration, and management, and business administration and management
  • Citizen activists and interested civic-minded citizens
  • High school civics teachers
  • Local, state, and federal public officials
  • Small business managers and financial officers
