Financial Investigation and Forensic Accounting
Publication Date: 2005-02-28
In recent years, accountants are witnessing a rise in financial crime, but are not accustomed to examining for fraud during their audits. Students training for accounting careers must expand their knowledge and expertise to include both legal and financial aspects of economic crime. This book explains the mechanics of gambling, fraud, and money laundering, and then illustrates how prosecutors present the tax codes, offshore banking laws, and the RICO statutes to judges and juries. This updated edition provides additional focus on locating terrorist funds, related new laws enacted, and computer fraud.
