The Human Element of Fraud Certification
Fraud can occur in any sector and it is important that employers and workers alike understand the technicalities and practical implications involved. However, most people overlook the human element of fraudulent activity, despite the fact that the psychology of fraud can help us prevent it happening in the first place.

In this course, you will learn why some people commit fraud, how they rationalise their own actions and the motives underpinning criminal activity in general.

Six reasons people commit fraud and why otherwise law-abiding citizens may become fraudsters
The six primary motives that drive people to commit crime
The six most common rationales behind a decision to commit fraud, including the belief that “everyone else does it”
