I focus on solving and preventing all problems related to fraud. This can mean various things depending on the type of client and what they’re looking to achieve. I help federal, state, and local governments investigate public corruption and conflicts of interest and also business owners quantify embezzlement losses for insurance claims. I also spend time performing “fraud check-ups” to proactively test for fraud and provide internal control recommendations, using data analytics to assist in class-action RICO lawsuits, and identifying fraud to support and/or defend shareholder oppression claims.
In college, I caught a fraudster while working as a cashier. When the math didn’t add up, I flagged the transaction. Fortunately, the perpetrator was caught — with over $2,000 from previously victimizing other stores. That was the start of this career!
