Deceit for financial gain examined in the next faculty lecture

(11-02-2011)

Learn what types of fraud are most commonly committed, the positions and annual income of perpetrators, and many other aspects of fraud during "Cooking the Books: Fraud in the Workplace", by Dr. Jeanie O'Laughlin, assistant professor of accounting. This Adams State College Faculty Lecture begins at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 16, in Porter Hall (the science building) room 130.

How is fraud committed? Who commits fraud? Are only large companies at risk? Does fraud occur in small companies? How about non-profits? Do managers commit fraud? Do employees commit fraud? Do only young people commit fraud? O'Laughlin's lecture will examine the dynamics of fraud.

All talks are free and the public is invited. Complimentary light refreshments will be offered. For further information on the series of lectures, contact Dr. Robert Astalos, associate professor of physics, at 719-587-7821, or by email: rjastalos@adams.edu.
