Conducting the Chi-Square analysis, the results indicated that (a) obedience pressure have a positive impact on fraudulent financial reporting; (b) publicity of financial report compiler as well as the level of religiosity have a negative impact on fraudulent financial reporting; and (c) both publicity of financial report compiler and the level of religiosity have a negative interaction with obedience pressure in influencing fraudulent financial reporting.
