TOPIC: Good, Bad & Ugly
Fraud Examinations

Erin Anker, Billy Petty, Michele Heyman

 Program Description:

A panel of experienced CFEs will discuss fraud examinations they have conducted, some of which were good, others that were bad, and still others that turned out to be down-right ugly.  Even the most well-planned examination can have unexpected challenges and others may go more smoothly than anticipated. The panelists will discuss factors that should contribute to success and what they think were the causes of the bad and ugly examinations and how they responded.
