Financial fraud will be the focus of the annual Wake Forest University Schools of Business Hylton Lecture.

"Trust but Verify: Understanding Fraud in Today's Economy" will be held on Thursday, Nov. 8 at 4:00 p.m. at Brendle Recital Hall.

Presenters will include Tom Golden, retired PricewaterhouseCoopers Partner-In-Charge of Chicago Investigations & Forensic Science and Kelly Richmond Pope, Associate Professor of Accountancy at DePaul University.

Among the topics will be a $52 million embezzlement case in Dixon, Il, the largest municipal fraud in our nation's history.
The presentation will be followed by a screen of the award-winning educational white-collar crime documentary, Crossing the Line: Ordinary People Committing Extraordinary Crimes.

The Hylton Lecture Series in Accountancy was established in 1980 to honor Delmar P. Hylton, who started Wake Forest’s accountancy program in 1949 and helped build it into one of the top accounting programs in the nation.
