Welcome to the Redesigned Fraud-Magazine.com

By Amy Logan

In a recent ACFE survey, Fraud Magazine readers were asked their opinions on how to improve Fraud Magazine, to rate its value as a membership benefit, and to explain how they use the information disseminated. The responses have been invaluable as we’ve worked to rebuild the magazine’s website to reflect today’s reader and meet your needs.

In the survey, 76 percent of the 1,158 respondents said they used the Internet as a secondary resource to Fraud Magazine when seeking anti-fraud information. We asked what Fraud Magazine could do to be more useful to members, and several replied they’d like to be able to view the magazine online and they’d like a better search function. We’ve upgraded our own technology to bring you an advanced search, and we’ve added a digital version of the magazine – a feature we feel will be particularly useful to our global community and readers who travel frequently for their jobs.

Many respondents mentioned they wanted to read more case studies about fraud examinations. You can find a page housing these types of articles under Browse Topics and Case Studies. We’re always seeking more case-study content, so we encourage you to visit the Get Published page located under Contact for more information on how to submit your stories and story ideas.

We’ve also added several resources to this site to enhance your job search and improve your chances of getting hired. We’ve included a Career section located under Browse Topics that houses articles on getting hired, starting your own business, the companies that are hiring and what they’re looking for, and more. Plus, this section will include the latest three job postings from the ACFE’s Job Board each week and a link to the job board.

We’ve also improved the archive for Fraud Magazine articles and columns. You can you use the enhanced search function to look for a particular issue, story, or author, but you can also go straight to the Archive page and select the issue you want to read by selecting the issue’s cover. You may also choose digital versions of issues from 2010 and beyond.

Fraud-Magazine.com is a great place to shop. We’ve included a Marketplace where you can view a Vendor Directory and shop for products and services by industry. If you’d like to advertise in the print and/or online versions of Fraud Magazine or at any ACFE event, the Marketplace is an excellent resource. Here you’ll find our most recent Media Kit, Vendor Directory, who to contact, and more.

We hope you enjoy the new Fraud-Magazine.com website. We’re always looking for constructive feedback, so don’t be shy; tell us what you think. What do you like and not like about the new site? Is it easy to navigate and find what you need? What new features would you like to see? Let us know – after all, we’ve designed it to make your jobs easier and enhance your careers.
