From the Paper:

"Current information suggests that occupational fraud losses for large corporations are estimated to now exceed $600 billion annually, an average of nearly $4500 per employee. Small businesses tend to be hurt worst by occupational fraud, at an average $127,500 per loss compared to the $97,000 average loss for larger companies. With the collapse of Enron and WorldCom and reports of other major corporations caught in similar acts, corporate fraud has increasingly been recognized as threatening trust in the economy, the integrity of the auditing profession and the state of business ethics within corporate America."
