Dispute Services Department where I deal mainly with investigating economic crimes and financial fraud and reporting as an Expert Witness on economic related issues.
I am an experienced Forensic Accountant helping companies react when there is a suspicion or evidence that either an insider or outsider is committing fraud or any misconduct against the company’s own interest. Fraud comprises mainly assets appropriation, accounting manipulation, corruption and conflict of interests.
I am deeply honoured and humbled to have been selected for the Fraud Investigator 2015 award and I would like to express my sincere appreciation to Wealth and Finance International Magazine.
Fraud and corruption
While companies might be good at developing their core business, they do not necessarily know how to react to fraud and corruption. Experience shows that when there is uncertainty, companies might make mistakes that might jeopardize future legal procedures. That is the reason why it is essential for the company to contact its legal advisors
and forensic accountants to help them keep information and evidence safe and take action right from the very beginning of the investigation. On discovering fraud, the media effect on listed and big companies is usually more devastating than the fraud itself. So it is paramount that the Executive Board of the company reacts rapidly and carefully and gathers as much information as they can so that fraud can be controlled to a full extent. This is absolutely necessary to take control on the information that might be leaked and save the company’s reputation from being ruined.
