Wk 4 Discussion

Answer the following the question on internal control measures and fraud based off reading Chapter 7 in our textbook.
Background: Accounting scandals and fraud, both in the United States and internationally, have re-ignited the debate over the current laws, regulation and accounting principles. The relative merits of GAAP, which takes a “rules-based” approach to accounting, versus IFRS, which takes a “principles-based” approach have been under scrutiny. In the last couple of years, the FASB announced that it intends to introduce more principles-based standards to improve general accounting principles and practices.
Discussion Question:
Organizations have internal control measures to detect fraud. In additions, organizations are subjected to required reporting of financial information to external entities. With that in mind, answer the following items in your initial discussion response:

Discuss the three factors identified in our textbook that contribute to fraudulent activity.
Define fraud and discuss one strategy in health care to prevent financial fraud.
Identify a real-world example of an organization that has committed fraud. What happened and what were the legal ramifications?

Make sure your initial response contains 175- to 265-words.
APA Formatting: Use citations where appropriate and list references. All citations and references, if used, must be in APA format. Only 15% of the content can be source material. If you write in your own words, only the reference is required.
