Course Description

Digital fraud involving cryptocurrencies is trending up dramatically. $1.7 billion worth of cryptocurrencies was stolen from investors in 2018, according to a report by a blockchain security firm. Sophisticated criminals in the United States and around the world are increasingly using cryptocurrencies in fraud and money laundering operations. Money laundering involving cryptocurrencies – a medium of exchange circulated over a computer network and generally not backed by a government – is a new twist on an old crime. This particular type of crime has broad implications for businesses, financial institutions, and the accounting profession.

As cyber-crime continues to expand, CPAs and Forensic Accountants need to gain knowledge of the current trends facing the public. This webcast analyzes how cryptocurrencies are used to perpetrate cyber-fraud and traditional fraud schemes. As trusted advisors, CPAs can assist in providing effective measures to avoid cryptocurrency scams. This webinar will explore real-life examples of fraud cases involving virtual currencies.
