||D. Larry Crumbley, KPMG Endowed Professor in the accounting
department at LSU’s E. J. Ourso College of Business, was a featured speaker
at the National Association of Certified Valuation Analysts 12th Annual
Consultants Conference in Philadelphia in June, 2005.
The conference’s theme for 2005 was “Valuation, Litigation, and Fraud
Deterrence – Practical, Theoretical, and Academic Perspectives.” Crumbley,
who holds fraud deterrence certification, presented “Lessons Learned from
the Various Fraud Surveys” to the professionals and academics in attendance.
“Fraud in the U.S. ranges from $660 billion to $1 trillion annually. Just
like termites, fraud never sleeps, and just as termites can destroy the
foundation of a building, fraud can destroy the foundation of an entity,”
Crumbley is also an organizer of the annual Fraud and Forensic Accounting
Conference hosted by the E. J. Ourso College accounting department. The 2005
Fraud and Forensic Accounting Conference will be held July 18-19 at the
Energy, Coast and Environment Building on LSU’s campus.
