Chapter Meeting Announcement

Webinar:  Evidence Collection for CFEs, CPAs, Auditors & Investigators

Presented by: Beth Mohr, CFE, CAMS, CCCI, PI

Managing Partner, The McHard Firm

Course Description:  What is considered evidence in a fraud examination, white-collar crime investigations, or employment investigations?  And what are you supposed to do with these items that might have evidentiary value?  This course will cover the types of documentary evidence that’s common in these cases, and discuss how to determine what needs to be preserved.  Real-life examples will be used to illustrate what to do – and what not to do!  We’ll cover evidence collection, retention and storage techniques, and help you put together a simple evidence collection kit for documentary evidence.  This course will cover “chain-of-custody” as a concept, and discuss how to maintain documentation logs to ensure evidence you’ve collected has the best chance of being admitted into court.  We’ll discuss what NOT to do with evidence, and when you should back away and call law enforcement for help.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Recognize items of potential evidentiary value in fraud examinations and white-collar cases.
  • Understand collection and preservation techniques regarding documentary evidence.
  • Identify factors that determine whether evidence will be admissible in court.
  • Comprehend the concept of “chain-of-custody” and how to document and maintain it.
