This month’s lecture for Chapter Members
This month’s lecture is THE DOCUMENTS OF FRAUD for two CPE credits.
We fraud examiners usually obtain a great deal of documentary evidence when conducting our fraud investigations. It is critical that the fraud examiner understand the relevance of this evidence and how it should be preserved and presented. Fraud examiners should always keep in mind that documents can either help or hurt a case, depending not only on which ones are presented but on how they are presented. Examiners should strive to make certain that all relevant documents are included and that all irrelevant documents are eliminated. Basic procedures in handling evidence are required for documents to be accepted, or given much credence, by the court. Proof must be provided that the evidence is relevant, material, and authentic. Enjoy!
