Fraud investigators must frequently present their findings in PowerPoint format to CEOs, board members, prosecutors, industry groups, etc. This is a critical skill and one that must be mastered in order to increase the chances of a successful investigation. In this critical thinking activity, you will develop 5 PowerPoint slides and play the role of a fraud investigator presenting to an audience. The details are as follows. You have been hired by ACME insurance company to assist in developing an anti-fraud program to help determine why the company is experiencing financial losses even though it seems to be doing well in sales and revenue generation. ACME offers personal auto insurance policies and targets the multi-vehicle family as its primary customer.
Along with insurance, the company also provides claim adjusting services, which include the handling of any medical claim as a result of a motor vehicle accident. ACME is a relatively small company (20 employees) and has not invested money into any database program to assist with this investigation. Therefore, you will have to use Excel and/or Access as the primary tool for your analytical investigation. This is your very first meeting with the company; in attendance will be the CEO, VP and 5 managers. They have explained to you that they only want you to use Excel and/or Access in your investigation and want you to explain the advantages and disadvantages of using each of these programs. Based on your opinion, you may want to make a recommendation as to which system you think would be the most effective when performing this fraud analysis. Make sure to fully evaluate and support your assessment. Your presentation should be at least 7 slides in length Include at least three scholarly references
