"Let's Talk Fraud" Podcast - Episode 1 - Phishing Email #FraudWeek

ACFE - Lebanon Chapter
November 15-16
8:00 AM
Online
During my career, I have met and talked to hundreds of people who have been harmed by fraud. From small business owners to CEOs, from students to neighbors, and everyone in between, people of all ages and from all backgrounds around the countries I have visited. Hearing their stories made me feel so motivated to create this podcast to offer everyone the needed advice to stop fraud. I got the opportunity to learn more about fraud and understand how fraudsters think and at the same time how to detect a lot of fraud cases especially in the corporate companies located MENA region a lot of those cases cover a wide variety of scams and I always provided ways to fight them back and spread the awareness so that we have the knowledge to face fraudsters. I do not want it to happen to anyone else. That is why I created this podcast! As an Anti-Fraud Specialist holding the Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE) credentials, I felt responsible of creating content for the public to spread awareness and inform our communities about the methods fraudsters may use against them. As a first step, I had created one season of 7 episodes tackling several fraud schemes in a very informative way providing listeners with the warning signs in order to detect the fraud and also immune them with defensive tools through practical tips. My goal of the “Let’s Talk Fraud.” podcast is to arm, as many people as I can with the information and tools you need to put a shield between you and the fraudster. The podcast content comes as an effort to educate and arm listeners of every age about as many fraud techniques and prevention strategies as possible. Here I will be sharing many of the stories I have heard and will be giving the needed advice. The content is such important information to have on hand, because we are living in a unique time full of chaos and that the best time for fraudsters to act. And as technology advances, fraudsters have completely transformed the landscape of scams, making them quicker, more global, more anonymous, and more interconnected than ever before. Let us join our efforts and learn more about what we can do to stop them. Each story in this podcast voices a lot of untold number of victims. These experiences, though extraordinarily painful, will serve to help many more, and we appreciate every single one sharing his/her story with fraud. We are grateful to all those whose contributions helped make this podcast possible and supporting the cause of spreading awareness. Let us STOP FRAUD together!

In this workshop, attendees will learn how to utilize the resources and programs that exist to combat elder financial exploitation and safeguard older adults.

Christina McGuire specializes in advising elder fraud victims and their family members on how to identify, report, and guard against fraud.

Podcast: Why We Need Compliance Officers More Than Ever

FTI Consulting, Inc.
November 18-21
6:00 AM - 6:18 AM
https://cms.megaphone.fm/organizations/437e98c2-dc33-11ea-a9b9-7341a4201dc9/podcasts/06078a80-de31-11ea-8d93-dfd0ad7bdb91/episodes/f5145314-2392-11eb-bf78-0b0d280f13b1/edit

The workforce that emerges from the combination of stay at home orders and the financial crisis will be very different than ever before. Each of us are dealing with unprecedented levels of stress, anxiety and uncertainty. These external stressors can cause people in positions of trust to suspend good judgement and make some truly terrible decisions putting themselves and their organizations at risk in the process. Indeed, decision-making under stress and unreasonable time pressure can be a perfect storm during which business ethics may be given short shrift.

Joining me today is Richard Bistrong. Richard is the CEO of Front-Line Anti-Bribery LLC through which he conducts corporate workshops and keynotes to sales teams, leadership groups (including boards and c-suite executives) and compliance teams (including internal audit, finance and HR). Richard’s career path veered wildly from being a highly successful international sales executive to when he was targeted and charged with violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. He then cooperated with the FBI in an undercover capacity in the notorious Shot Show case. After his cooperation was concluded, Richard was incarcerated for 14 and half months and was released in December 2013.

"Let's Talk Fraud" Podcast - Episode 4 - Ponzi Scheme #FraudWeek

ACFE - Lebanon Chapter
November 18-19
8:00 AM
Online
During my career, I have met and talked to hundreds of people who have been harmed by fraud. From small business owners to CEOs, from students to neighbors, and everyone in between, people of all ages and from all backgrounds around the countries I have visited. Hearing their stories made me feel so motivated to create this podcast to offer everyone the needed advice to stop fraud. I got the opportunity to learn more about fraud and understand how fraudsters think and at the same time how to detect a lot of fraud cases especially in the corporate companies located MENA region a lot of those cases cover a wide variety of scams and I always provided ways to fight them back and spread the awareness so that we have the knowledge to face fraudsters. I do not want it to happen to anyone else. That is why I created this podcast! As an Anti-Fraud Specialist holding the Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE) credentials, I felt responsible of creating content for the public to spread awareness and inform our communities about the methods fraudsters may use against them. As a first step, I had created one season of 7 episodes tackling several fraud schemes in a very informative way providing listeners with the warning signs in order to detect the fraud and also immune them with defensive tools through practical tips. My goal of the “Let’s Talk Fraud.” podcast is to arm, as many people as I can with the information and tools you need to put a shield between you and the fraudster. The podcast content comes as an effort to educate and arm listeners of every age about as many fraud techniques and prevention strategies as possible. Here I will be sharing many of the stories I have heard and will be giving the needed advice. The content is such important information to have on hand, because we are living in a unique time full of chaos and that the best time for fraudsters to act. And as technology advances, fraudsters have completely transformed the landscape of scams, making them quicker, more global, more anonymous, and more interconnected than ever before. Let us join our efforts and learn more about what we can do to stop them. Each story in this podcast voices a lot of untold number of victims. These experiences, though extraordinarily painful, will serve to help many more, and we appreciate every single one sharing his/her story with fraud. We are grateful to all those whose contributions helped make this podcast possible and supporting the cause of spreading awareness. Let us STOP FRAUD together!
