  1. With the advent of computers, cybercrime and Internet frauds are increasing in frequency and in size. The trend is likely to continue. Cybercrimes are described as activities in which a computer or network of computers are an integral part of a crime.
    For this assignment, research the Internet or Strayer databases and identify an organization that was a victim of cybercrime. You will assess the fraud and its impact, discuss how it could have been detected, assess economic losses and recommend a plan to restore those losses, and discuss accidental fraudsters and predators. You will also evaluate the roles of teamwork and leadership in forensic investigations.

    1. Based on your research, identify and assess the fraud that occurred in the organization, as well as the impact that the fraud had on the corporation’s investors and creditors. 
    2. Suggest how a financial forensic investigation could have detected fraud in the organization that you researched. Consider the risk factors, the elements of fraud, and the analysis of competing hypotheses.       
    3. Assess the economic losses that occurred at the organization you researched and recommend a plan of action for the company to restore any economic losses.
    4. Compare and contrast accidental fraudsters and predators. Give your opinion on what type of fraudsters committed fraud at the organization you researched. Provide support for your rationale.
