WSU joins movement to shine a spotlight on fraud

November 9, 2017

Fraud costs organizations worldwide an estimated 5 percent of their annual revenues, according to a study conducted by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE).

To promote anti-fraud awareness and education, Wayne State University’s Office of Internal Audit will participate in the ACFE’s International Fraud Awareness Week (Nov. 12-18) by hosting several informational sessions on campus.

Fraud awareness training will illustrate how unethical behavior and fraudulent activity harms the university. These sessions will explain why people commit fraud and share traits that are common among fraudsters. Join the movement to proactively fight fraud and become a “fraud fighter” by attending a session Monday, Nov. 13, in the Academic/Administrative Building at 5700 Cass Avenue, Suite 3700. Sessions will be held in half-hour increments from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

If you suspect fraud, any suspicious activity, misuse, misappropriation, etc., at WSU, please contact the Fraud Hotline at 313-577-5138. For online reporting, please submit an anonymous tips form. For more information concerning Fraud Awareness Training at Wayne State for your department, visit
