How New Fraud Examiners Can Find Information

By Edited by Colin May, CFE, and Mark F. Zimbelman, Ph.D., Educator Associate, CPA

Starting Out 

Half the battle in any fraud examination is finding information. Whether it's timely material on related parties of a corporation or the latest trends in mortgage fraud, all new (and seasoned) fraud examiners should have a bookshelf of essential reference guides and bookmarks of reliable Web links.

Here we list some Web links and books that we believe you'll find valuable for various investigations. (All links have been tested as of publication but we don't necessarily endorse the sites or vouch for their contents.)

Also see and the ACFE's "Fraud Examiners Manual" for a list of Web sites for state agencies, media outlets, international links, and higher-education links.

E-mail us your useful Web links and we might include them in a future column.
