Forensic Accounting

Forensic Accounting

Knowing how to discover inconsistencies in balance sheets, bank accounts, and expense reports is arguably more an art form than a numbers game.

Forensic accounting is a specialty field investigating possible white-collar crimes that are committed through accounting and auditing procedures. Certified Fraud Examiners investigate possible cases of insurance fraud, embezzlement, banking crimes, and other accounting discrepancies with commercial enterprises.
