A creative way to communicate fraud prevention to your clients

As CPAs, we look for creative ways to persuade our clients to implement good internal controls.  I fear that our comments as CPAs usually fade along with all the other you-gotta’-do-this-now messages in our regulatory heavy culture.  Another approach is to explain the devastation that arises from fraud.  I have a new post at my other blog that takes this approach:  The tragedy of fraud

I’ve wanted to write something along this line for a long time.  The sad situation at a nearby church allows me opportunity. 

I hope my article can give you a story or a few one-liners you can use in discussions with clients.  Sometimes a specific story makes a point far better than a generalized concept.
