Default How forensic accountants help bring down white-collar criminals and drug kingpins

Have you ever watched the crime show "CSI"? The forensic scientist, flashlight in hand, combs every inch of the murder scene for clues.

Forensic accountants do the same kind of work — but in the financial world. They investigate crimes like money laundering, fraud and tax evasion.

“We’re like the accounting pathologists,” said Dawn Brolin, CEO of Powerful Accounting. “We come in and we will tell the story of how the crime happened.” The incriminating evidence comes from bank statements and ledgers. “Because numbers tell a story,” Brolin said. “Transactions tell a story.”

Every transaction is a potential clue.
