Literature Reviews
The title of study #1 is Fraud Risk and Audit Planning. “This study presents descriptive evidence on fraud risk factors in a sample of audit clients, and the relationship of those factors to fraud risk assessments and audit tests directed at controlling the risk of fraud” (Graham & Bedard, 2003, p. 55). Four interesting results were found. 1. Most clients have one or more factors indicative to increased fraud risk 2. Only a weak association of the number of fraud risk factors identified with the level of fraud risk assessed. 3. Auditors initially plan to address fraud
