Full Text Reviews
Appeared in Choice on 2011-03-01:
Each of this book's 41 chapters describes an Internet-related fraud in a brief vignette format. All these case studies are written in the first person by the individual fraud investigator involved. Each study relates the background of the fraud, the people involved, the investigator's role in solving the case, and usually what legal action concluded the case. Following this description, each study provides a "Lessons Learned" summary, a "Recommendations to Prevent Future Occurrences" list, and a brief author biography. Given the many authors and diversity of cases ("The Broken Nest Egg," "The eBay Fraud Brothers," "Wire Transfers from Nowhere," etc.), the consistency of each chapter's description and format reflects an extraordinary editing job by Wells and his staff. Though most cases occurred in the US, there are a number of international ones too, e.g., in such noted fraud-originating countries as Russia and Nigeria. This book will have broad appeal to anyone interested in gaining a better perspective of how inventive and opportunistic criminals are in exploiting the Internet to commit fraud. Summing Up: Recommended. General readers and professionals/practitioners. E. M. Aupperle emeritus, University of Michigan

Summaries
Back Cover Copy
Praise for Internet Fraud Casebook: The World Wide Web of Deceit "A valuable resource for consumers, businesses, and fraud investigators alike. It is filled with fascinating cases that range from fraud on auction sites, counterfeit goods, identity theft, and mail-order brides. I especially liked the guidance for fraud investigators." - James Bierstaker , Department of Accountancy, Villanova School of Business, Villanova University "The cases included in this book point out how the Internet has turned the world into a cookie jar with no lid. When reading the various cases, you can't help but come to the chilling understanding that the one thing criminals have always needed - access - is now available to them in real time." - Allen Brown , CFE, CPA, Director of Internal Audit, Louisiana Community and Technical College System "In his typically easy-to-read and hard-to-put-down style, Joseph Wells provides convincing evidence that Internet fraud has evolved into new methodologies that criminals use to gather, organize, and create a whole new category of victims. Highly recommended reading!" - Dick Riley , PhD, CFE, CPA, Louis F. Tanner Distinguished Professor of Public Accounting, College of Business & Economics, West Virginia University "Mr. Wells's compendium of actual cases illustrates that traditional investigative techniques can help solve modern Internet crimes. As the Internet is used to commit fraud, so it can be used to investigate fraud. A valuable resource!" - Martha R. McVeigh , CFE, Rhode Island Department of the Attorney General "For anyone desiring to prevent, detect or prosecute Internet fraud, this tome is an engaging, cutting-edge must-read. Well organized with plenty of practical guidance in each chapter." - Dennis M. Dunleavy , CFE, Alexandria, Virginia "We were taught - follow the cash. Now, we need to learn - follow the IP address. Either way, it leads to the cash and the bad guys. Just when you think you've seen it all, you realize the tremendous creativity of the criminal mind." - Philip C. Levi , CFE, CMC, FCA, CPA/CFF, CA IFA, Levi & Sinclair, LLP "The book was frightening, enlightening, and helpful. The devious minds of fraudsters never cease to amaze me. Thankfully, we have some very diligent and talented fraud examiners out there who are equal to the task. My hat's off to them." - Ron Durkin , CFE, CPA, Durkin Forensic Incorporated
