    What We're Looking For

    We accept articles and columns that contain:

    • Practical, down-in-the-trenches material readers can apply immediately in their careers.
    • Transferable methods you used to discover a fraud.
    • Strong cases, anecdotes, current facts and figures, and sound approaches to fraud detection and deterrence. 
    • Ideas or tips useful to fraud examiners in any country.

    Please begin your articles and columns with descriptions of cogent case histories that will draw the readers into your content. Our members are fascinated by stories that demonstrate how authors worked cases and learned their lessons.

    Concerned about your writing skills? Our editors can help you organize your thoughts and polish your copy until it's ready for publication. You have the experience, and we have the writing and editing skills. Together, we can make a great team and help you get published!
