Abstract

This case examines a real world case of identity theft from start to finish. The case details the victim’s experience from the day he was told he had insufficient funds in his bank account and realized that he had been the victim of fraud until the resolution of the fraud. By completing the case, students will learn steps to prevent identity theft and also actions they can take if they do become victims of identity theft. The case was designed to be used in either undergraduate or graduate level classes. It is suitable for an Introduction to Business, an Ethics or a Fraud Detection and Deterrence course. Students typically require one to two hours outside of class to complete the case. The instructor should budget approximately one hour of class time to go over the case in class.
