CAQ Releases Latest Fraud Detective Video

April 4, 2013

The Center for Audit Quality has unveiled the latest entry in its series of film noir-style animated videos about auditing made to resemble old-fashioned comic books.

The fourth episode, entitled “Fighting Fraud,” features some of the same characters as the previous episodes, including auditor Ledger Lines and CFO Lotta Charts, along with audit committee chair Indy Pendent, internal auditor Ida Figures, and regulator Johnny Law. They are all supposed to be part of a group known as the System of Investor Protection.

While they may not have the superhero powers (or box office potential) of the X-Men or the Avengers, the CAQ’s clever videos have generated a following on the Web. The newest entry does a reasonably entertaining job of explaining what conditions might lead an employee to commit fraud and how companies and auditors can protect against fraud.
