Types of Financial Statement Fraud Schemes

Three professors have broken financial statement fraud schemes into these ten types:

1.

Fictitious and/or overstated revenues and assets (e.g., nonordered or cancelled goods). Sunbeam created revenues by contingent sales, a bill-and-hold strategy, and accelerated sales. Digital Lightware, Inc. recognized fraudulent billings.

2.

Premature Revenue Recognition (e.g., holding books open).

3.

Misclassified Revenues and Assets (e.g., combining restricted cash accounts with unrestricted cash accounts). School districts and universities may engage in this strategy with dedicated funds.
