If you are working in the accounting field at some time in your career it may be necessary to conduct a fraud investigation. Unfortunately, fraud occurs at all types of entities including; public companies, private companies, partnerships, not-for-profits, LLCs, sole proprietors, and government entities. In many instances criminal and civil cases cannot move forward because evidence is gathered incorrectly and is therefore inadmissible in court.
