Download to calendar

The Data Sleuth Process provides a roadmap for financial investigators to be able to quantify losses in embezzlement and occupational fraud investigations. It is through the combination of the most common data sources (i.e., bank statements, credit card statements, and payroll reports) and the standard Data Sleuth analyses that fraud is uncovered and quantified providing victims with the proof they need to take their next steps. 

Using interactive case study examples throughout the 50 minute training, Leah Wietholter, CFE, MBA, PI, walks attendees through the Data Sleuth Process focusing on simple, effective, and repeatable analyses using Excel to uncover, quantify, and report occupational fraud investigation findings.
