Enron – How did corporate fraud shake the financial world?

Fraud on a state/federal level was overlooked as a “real” crime until the scandal with Enron Corporation, an American energy, commodities, and services company based in Houston, Texas, and the 2008 Mortgage Fraud Scandal. For those who were actively working in the financial crimes field at the time, prior cases involving millions of dollars in theft resulted in offenders receiving as little as 2 month sentences on individual indictments. Following these two incidents, crimes of this nature had were adjudicated under conspiracy charges and multiple indictments as well as a few Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act charges, when corporate fraud was attached to organized crime.

For the final core assessment in this course, you will write a research paper on the topic below.
