Certified Fraud Examiners
IDENTIFY THE SOURCE
Uncover fraudulent activities or misappropriation of assets.
As an ethics-based firm, we believe strength of purpose is the best defense against a few bad apples. In February 2003, our founder, Robert B. Loe was designated a “Certified Fraud Examiner” (CFE) by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners. This designation is given to only a select few professionals who meet a stringent set of criteria, including character, experience, and education requirements. Designed to prevent white-color crime, CFE’s are responsible for resolving a wide range of allegations of fraud and work closely with corporations, private businesses and government agencies to assure accuracy and detect, investigate and deter fraud. If a client requires any degree of forensic accounting, we are able to perform this task at optimum, credible levels.
How can I prepare for an investigation?
There really isn’t much that you can do to prepare for a forensic investigation or examination. The best course of action is to not confront any suspected employees. This can easily spook them and cause then to flee from justice or even attempt to destroy or further cover their tracks. From there, you will want to get a copy of your financial records/books.
Forensic examinations can be simple or complex depending on a lot of variables so the first thing to do is talk to us so that we can assess the situation and decide if we have the expertise to complete your job. In some cases, a forensic examination may require intimate knowledge about the field in which the company operates while other times it may not. If we feel comfortable with us, we will continue by creating an engagement letter. From there, we must have the signed engagement letter in order for us to begin any work. After that, we will work closely with the client to ensure that we are completing the engagement in a way that satisfies any concerns you may have.
