Book Description

This book will cover every aspect of forensic accounting, anti-fraud control systems and fraud investigation. The author uses his own case experience to guide those who are engaged in fraud investigation and forensic accounting step by step through each phase of a forensic accounting assignment and fraud investigation. The book opens with a real-world explanation of forensic accounting and fraud investigation using knowledge and experience gained from 40 years of experience. Then, using current data and real-world examples, the book explains the current white-collar crime threats that organizations face every day, as well as legal issues implicated in forensic accounting and fraud investigation projects.

The book also covers both electronic and non-electronic evidence gathering in detail. There is a chapter devoted entirely to the often misunderstood, but extremely important, subject of witness interviews. It provides the correct approach to the analysis and correlation of evidence in determining findings and conclusions of an investigation. Another chapter is devoted to proper report writing. The book then provides detailed guidance on presenting findings to a variety of audiences, including management, the board, law enforcement and at trial. It also covers proper techniques for measuring economic damages. Finally, the book concludes with a useful glossary and index.
