Fraud types

The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) has developed the so-called Fraud Tree. Along with other organisations such as the UK’s Action Fraud (AF) – researchers have categorised frauds into numerous (in some cases over 100) different fraud types.

In addition, the recent Covid 19 (CV19) global pandemic has created new opportunities for fraudsters.


Select THREE separate individual frauds. They should be distinct from each other – you can use the “Fraud Tree” or AF site for guidance. At least one such fraud should be related to the CV19 pandemic.

(i) Explain the nature and mechanics of the selected frauds and give a detailed explanation of HOW such frauds would be committed.

(ii) Provide an illustrative diagram (on one side of A4 maximum or one PowerPoint slide per fraud) clearly demonstrating how the identified frauds would be perpetrated.

(iii) Briefly explain what practical controls may be needed to prevent and detect such frauds.

Note: You may choose to find a real life example(s) of such frauds actually occurring. This is not a direct requirement but the real life cases may aid your explanation.

Credit will be given if you identify and explain a complex or unusual type of fraud.

Marking scheme:


Explanation of identified frauds


Quality and clarity of illustrative diagram(s)


Explanation of controls






Please submit a Word file via Turnitin by 23:59 on 20th February 2022. Your “illustrative diagram” should be scanned and included as part of the word file. Explain the nature and mechanics of the selected frauds and give a detailed explanation of HOW such frauds would be committed
