The consequences of this practice are devastating on the investing community as well as on the society as a whole. Sell-side security analysts, among other gatekeepers in the financial markets, have been criticized. They should examine financial data issued by listed companies to assure investing public about the reliability of published data. So, to understand how listed companies have succeeded in issuing fraudulent financial reports in the presence of gatekeepers such as sell-side analysts, a well-known fraud case was chosen, i.e. Enron Company.
