Bernard Madoff Investment Securities LLC was the source of the largest financial fraud in US history. The extent of the losses related to Madoff’s Ponzi scheme has been estimated at $50 - $65 billion.
Many are astounded to hear that Bernard Madoff Investment Securities LLC was audited by a CPA. Unfortunately, Madoff’s CPA apparently did not subscribe to the AICPA Code of Professional Conduct, as most of the rules contained in the code were ignored. This course provides a case study examining the conduct of Friehling & Horowitz CPA’s P.C., the CPA firm that audited Bernard Madoff Investment Securities LLC, within the context of the AICPA Code of Professional Conduct.
