Forensic Accounting is the use of accounting and other business techniques to investigate and uncover fraud, gather evidence and present findings in a courtroom setting. The criminal site investigation involves the applicable books, financial records and documents examined. Frauds include theft of cash and merchandise, corruption, bribery, kickbacks, fraudulent financial statements, hidden assets, divorce, bankruptcy, money laundering, identity theft and false insurance claims. Earning an Online Forensic Accounting Certificate can help you move forward in this career field.
