Fraud and how to spot it is the subject of a book published by accountancy firm KPMG.
'Fraud Watch: A guide for business' is filled with real-life examples. KPMG wrote it in response to a request from the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales, says institute president Roger Lawson.
