Embezzlement is the theft of money or other items that often belong to an employer and are trusted to an employee. When an employee embezzles money they find methods to steal from their employers and commit fraud without the company’s knowledge. This could be accomplished by stealing either a little at a time or a significant amount of money on one single occasion. Whatever type of fraud has been committed, it is important to get professional help in the form of a forensic accountant. With the services of a forensic accountant, you will have someone to determine the full extent of the crime and how it has affected your finances.
Once a forensic accountant is hired it is their job to gather all information available about the fraud case and look for anything that will be helpful for the investigation. The accountant will look through data and interview employees that are significant to the case. Using technological resources, a forensic accountant can determine if they is anything unusual or red flags that could point to fraud. They can then be involved in the court proceedings by providing their expert knowledge and evidence that they have gathered throughout the investigation.
