Abstract

With the development of market economy and modern science and technology, some listed companies' financial frauds are constantly discovered and exposed. Taking Zoneco as a case, combining with fraud triangle theory, this paper analyzes the background, causes and means of financial fraud in enterprises, which is different from the traditional way of combining financial statement data analysis with on-the-spot inventory. This paper discusses that modern big data technology provides a more innovative and intuitive method for identifying fraud, and broadens the way for maintaining the stability for the securities market.

Keywords

Zoneco group, financial fraud, fraud triangle theory, big data technology
