    From the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE):
    • The biggest mistake business owners make is believing that they are immune to fraud.
    • Businesses with under 100 employees are especially vulnerable to fraud, with fewer anti-fraud controls in place than larger organizations with high levels of capital resources.
    • Most small businesses that experience fraud do not recover any of their losses.
    In this highly informative session, you will learn
    • Best practices for your business to detect and prevent fraud
    • Why “we have a comptroller” or “we’ve been through an audit” won’t discover fraud
    • Case studies of businesses that had it all covered, and how they were still defrauded
    • Psychology of fraudsters—why they’re often the people you know best and trust the most
    • What you can do tomorrow morning to make your business more secure from fraudsters
    Special Guest Speaker for International Fraud Awareness Week:
    Michael Pocalyko, Certified Fraud Examiner, CEO of Special Investigations, Investigator, International Fraudbuster, member of the ACFE Advisory Council, and original DRCC “Dulles 28” Benefactor
    Why reservations are required:
    Special Investigations will be showing our guests how fraud is accomplished and then demonstrating some cutting-edge techniques for fraud prevention. This conversation is for the good guys. We’re not about to teach the fraudsters what we know.

    Answers to FAQs:
    • Yes, completely free.
    • Nope. No sales pitches, no pay-to-play sponsors. It’s a public service from Special Investigations and The Dulles Chamber provided for businesses during International Fraud Awareness Week.
    • Wine bar. Yes—that means an open bar. Free. No—a wine bar does not have beer or hard liquor. Yes—of course there will be non-alcoholic beverages. No—light fare is not dinner.
    • Reservations are by name, not just providing the number of people.
    • An hour and a half, from 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm.
    • About 20 minutes of talk, followed by open conversation with the fraud experts.
    • Yes, please bring a guest, just provide his or her name in advance to ellen@specinv.com.
    • No, continuing professional education (CPE) or in-service hours are not creditable for this event.
    • We welcome our brothers and sisters in Blue—law enforcement officers. It’s definitely an appropriate community event for you.
    • Sure. Call Special Investigations at 703.674.0514 with that question.
