Business.gov.au states that the aim of International Fraud Awareness Week is to “minimise the impact of fraud by promoting anti-fraud awareness and education.”
Business.gov.au emphasises that the Week is a good time to start a discussion in the workplace about the importance of fraud detection, and suggested that business owners and employers: print and post a free infographic in the workplace to help employees learn more about fraud, run an info session or seminar about fraud awareness, and/or invite a Certified Fraud Examiner from the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) to talk to employees.
There is a dedicated website on International Fraud Awareness Week, which contain a variety of resources. These resources include stories of victims of fraud, a video of a panel discussion with a Certified Fraud Examiner and victims of fraud, shareable videos, videos of stories from convicted fraudsters, guides, infographics, and reports. The website also has a quiz on infamous fraud scandals.
International Fraud Awareness Week kicked off on Sunday and concludes on Saturday (Nov 18). More information can be found here.
