APDR Working Papers are works in progress that have been presented at APDR conferences, workshops and other events.

Editors: Geraldine Walsh, President, FINRA Investor Education Foundation,Gary R. Mottola, Research Director FINRA Foundation, Christine Kieffer, Senior Director, FINRA Foundation’s Investor Protection Campaign, and Susan Arthur, Associate Director, FINRA Foundation’s Investor Protection Campaign

Sponsor: The mission of the FINRA Investor Education Foundation (www.finrafoundation.org) is to provide underserved Americans with the knowledge, skills and tools necessary for financial success throughout life. The FINRA Foundation envisions a society characterized by universal financial literacy. The FINRA Foundation’s Investor Protection Campaign aims to educate investors and intermediaries to reduce the incidence of investment fraud. Through research, education and outreach, the program increases fraud prevention awareness, empowers consumers and trains law enforcement and other advocates to recognize, prevent and assist victims of financial fraud.

Description: Research on consumer financial fraud is currently spread across a number of fields – including behavioral economics, psychology, marketing, law, finance and criminology. This eJournal includes working and accepted paper abstracts covering all aspects of consumer financial fraud to practitioners across these disparate fields. The objective is to expand the body of knowledge on financial fraud, make research findings and their implications more accessible to academics and policy makers, and encourage research in this field by providing researchers with a distribution channel that targets stakeholders in many relevant disciplines. For the purposes of this eJournal, consumer financial fraud is defined broadly as intentionally and knowingly deceiving the victim by misrepresenting, concealing or omitting facts about promised goods, services or other benefits and consequences that are nonexistent, unnecessary, never intended to be provided or deliberately distorted for the purpose of monetary gain. Relevant topics include, but are not limited to, measuring the incidence and prevalence of financial fraud, profiling victims and fraudsters, understanding the causes and consequences of financial fraud, exploring relationships between cognitive ability and fraud victimization, fMRI research on fraud victims and evaluating the effectiveness of interventions to prevent financial fraud.

This eJournal is NOT focused on frauds that target organizations, such as embezzlement, corruption and tax evasion. In addition, this eJournal focuses on frauds where victims are deceived or persuaded into participating in a fraudulent transaction – so frauds like identity theft and credit card theft are outside its scope.

With the advent of International Financial Reporting Standards, accounting is more than ever a global field where professionals, scholars and practitioners evolve and work across borders. Accounting research has greatly benefited from the opening of institutional and other borders as it has provided for greater opportunities to expand research domains and to enhance the diversity of accounting academe. By its content and orientation, this year’s conference intends to reflect such trends.

Moreover, in the spirit of accounting research being increasingly international, the CAAA opens up its own frontier by holding its annual conference jointly with the Association francophone de comptabilia (French Accounting Association), France’s leading accounting academic association; thus, allowing for further international networking and, yes, connections.
