Forensic Accounting

Forensic Accounting


  • Some of the most respected companies in the world such as World Com, Enron, Anderson, Xerox, Tyco and even Halliburton in Nigeria have been indicted of some degree of financial scandals.
  • In another development, employees often steal their employers’ blind. When the enemies within bilk their companies of their money, they do so via manipulation of financial records and statements with tracks fully covered or completely erased.
