Synopsis: A collection of insightful, poignant, and humorous stories from Dr. Joseph Wells, the world's foremost fraud expert?with gutsy revelations of his own past mistakes

From his dysfunctional childhood in rural Oklahoma; his service in the U.S.Navy; a brief stint in public accounting followed by a career in the FBI; and founding the world's largest anti-fraud organization, Wells' colorful life experiences were preparation for his rise to one of the globe's most revered antifraud experts.

  • Written by the preeminent antifraud authority and founder and Chairman of the ACFE
  • Offers a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at the life of one of the most influential white-collar crime experts of our time

At a period when dishonesty at top U.S. companies is dominating public attention, The Fables and Foibles of a Fraud Fighter is a surprisingly frank and gripping memoir from an unsurprisingly effective fraud fighter.This autobiography forms a full tapestry of a life, displaying wit, intrigue, trepidation, regret, and finally, ultimate victory.

From the Inside Flap: Fraud Fighter My Fables and Foibles

"Everyone lies. Everyone. Fraud, though, is a lie with a special twist?it is committed to deprive an innocent victim of money or property. In the following pages, you will learn how I ended up in the anti-fraud field. And you'll find out that?like with many of you?much of it happened by accident; by fate; perhaps by pre-destiny; and yes, by occasionally being dishonest. This is not a story of someone pure and blameless but of a man who made many mistakes along the way to his calling." ? Dr. Joseph Wells, from Fraud Fighter

If you're familiar with the names of WorldCom, Enron, and Madoff, it's thanks to the skilled, vigilant, tireless work of accountants, auditors, and fraud investigators who likely learned their trade at the feet of Joseph Wells. If corporate fraud is more easily discovered before it becomes a train wreck, it is because of the incalculable contribution Dr. Wells has made in educating the public on white-collar crime and promoting fraud prevention and detection.

Joseph Wells has lived a life full of adventure?born and raised in the plains of Oklahoma, seeing the world through his years of service in the U.S. Navy, becoming a "real-life, gun-totin' FBI agent," and eventually going after the bad guys through his own creation, the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE), which would eventually become the world's largest anti-fraud organization.

In Fraud Fighter: My Fables and Foibles, he shares fascinating stories from his experiences:

  • Prosecuting former U.S. Attorney General John Mitchell for his involvement in the Watergate break-in

  • Working with former NYC mayor and former assistant U.S. attorney Rudy Giuliani

  • His short stint as a music business manager

  • Meeting Ross Perot?and what he really thinks of the former presidential candidate

  • Launching an organization that was destined to change the business world

Wells offers his story as an honest account of his life fighting fraudsters?as well as his own demons and missteps along the way. Alternately humorous and heartbreaking, this startlingly frank memoir finds Wells turning the tables on himself, taking inventory of his painful childhood and struggles with addiction to eventually emerge as a renowned white-collar criminologist, award-winning author, philanthropist, and anti-fraud educator.

More than a chronicle of a fraud investigator, Fraud Fighter showcases the insight and wisdom Wells has gained in his life and career to eventually pave the way for a new generation of accountants and auditors to become active deterrents to the deceit that plagues the business world today. One hundred percent of this book's royalties will go to the ACFE Foundation, a nonprofit organization providing scholarships for future fraud fighters.
