The Evolution of Man: From Neanderthal to Madoff
Knowing how a fraudster commits fraud is, of course, interesting. Yet even more fascinating is WHY a fraudster commits fraud. Knowing the "why" is often the most important element in both understanding the fraudulent activity as well as detecting and recovering from fraud.
With a focus on the psychopathy and sociopathy behind the behavior of a fraudster, this presentation looks at the primordial personality profile of a fraudster, comparing him to our Neanderthal and Human ancestors, and translates that into more successful returns on the practitioner's investment into the investigation, prosecution and recovery from all forms of fraud.
