Course Description

A fraud investigation is aimed at examining evidence to determine if a fraud occurred, how it happened, who was involved, and how much money was lost. Investigations occur in cases ranging from embezzlement, to falsification of financial statements, to suspicious insurance claims.

This online CPE course is designed to cover the steps of the fraud engagement starting with the determination whether a fraud investigation should be conducted, working with clients and attorneys, gathering and analyzing evidence, completing an engagement report, and testifying at depositions and trials about the evidence that wasn’t covered during the investigation.
