Although increasing attention has been paid to it, there are no signs that crime and corruption in organizations is decreasing, so if you're a manager or government policy maker, and your mandate is to reduce crime and corruption, where do you start? The international authors of this book fill a critical need to address such a prevalent and costly topic with a detailed analysis of the risks associated with crime and corruption in organizations. They examine the causes and consequences, and the choices we face in our efforts to eradicate these social maladies. They focus on the risks to individuals and organizations surrounding criminal and corrupt acts, with an emphasis on the psychological, behavioral and organizational factors supporting such behaviors. Finally, they explore the phenomenon of crime and corruption across a diverse array of organizational settings (ranging from public to private, for-profit to non-profit) and occupational categories (e.g., police officers, physicians, accountants, and academicians). The constant barrage of scandals publicized by the media demands 'front burner' attention dedicated to stemming this tide. Accordingly, this book turns to prominent researchers employing their talents to produce more ethical organizations. The result is the most up-to-date thinking on both classic (e.g., cognitive moral development) and novel (e.g., moral attentiveness) approaches to crime and corruption, as well as scientifically-grounded approaches to reducing illicit behavior in organizations.

This book uniquely approaches white-collar crime, organizational misconduct, and fraud examination in a holistic manner by offering insights from a multi-disciplinary perspective. What fraud examination entails must be expanded to include various disciplines such as the behavioral and social sciences to create a template describing the corporate fraud offender profile and their inclination to exploit vulnerable situations to satisfy their motives. Chapter 1) covers the criminological considerations of white-collar offenders by outlining their criminal thinking patterns, motivations, rationalizations and worldviews justifying their behavior. In addition this chapter debunks the myth that these offenders display a uniform criminal profile together with how our biases have distorted how we perceive these offenders increasing the risk of further exploitation. Chapter 2) covers accounting fraud schemes specifically addressing managerial risk factors, revenue, expense, asset, liability and disclosure schemes. Chapter 3) explores the behavioral profile of the corporate fraud offender by applying the personality traits of Machiavellianism, narcissism and psychopathy that serve as risk factors increasing the probability that they will resort to fraud as a solution to satisfy their motivations. Chapters 4) examines risk factors facilitating the process of normalizing organizational misconduct, the influence of culture and the role of social identification facilitating misconduct. Chapter 5) explores challenges in overcoming organizational misconduct such as the influence of group dynamics and workplace bullying on individuals, obedience to authority figures, the danger of ethical fading and the political accommodation of white-collar crime. Chapter 6) offers solutions mitigating organizational misconduct such as the role of whistle-blowing, the use of integrity assessments, the promotion of ethical awareness, and the prosecution of organizations. Chapter 7) covers corporate governance specifically why the board of directors and external auditors fail in detecting and disclosing corruption and solutions on how to improve their corporate governance role. This chapter also includes a template on managing the risk of organizational corruption including topics on fraud risk assessments, prevention, and detection, the role of the internal auditor and how auditors can avoid criminal prosecution. Chapter 8) explores violent white-collar offenders, their behavioral profile and the victims they target and what steps fraud examiners and auditors can take to protect themselves. Methods used by violent fraud offenders, such as murder-for-hire, are illustrated together with the relationship between workplace violence and fraud is explored. Moreover case studies of violence and fraud within families is extensively covered. Chapter 9) covers the important skill of interviewing in fraud examination. We explore why it is important to consider an offender's personality traits in formulating an interviewing strategy, common errors made in deception detection together with strategies on how to improve deception detection. Chapter 10) covers regulatory oversights specifically why regulators such as the Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) did not detect Bernard Madoff's Ponzi scheme that occurred in plain sight of the SEC. Chapter 11) covers predatory fraud practices and offenders such as Bernard Madoff are examined revealing how they were able to manipulate victims through their skill set together with exploring their behavioral profile. Social psychology is applied, namely the role of social influence explaining how well-educated people fall prey to predatory schemes. Chapter 12) covers women and white-collar crime and those women that resort to murder to conceal their fraud schemes. Chapter 13) covers the relationship between white-collar crime, terrorism and organized crime and chapter 14) covers white-collar crime victimology and punishment.
