FOLLOW THE MONEY TRAILS OF CRIMINAL ACTIVITY AND NATIONAL SECURITY MATTERS
Forensic Accountants in the FBI tackle complex challenges with every assignment. They work hand-in-hand with Special Agents to keep America safe by tracing and linking funding sources to criminal activity and national security matters.
As a core member of the investigative team, the Forensic Accountant owns the financial aspects of the investigation by acquiring, organizing, analyzing, and reporting financial data. FBI Forensic Accountants:
- Understand the overall “big” picture of the case.
- Create and communicate the financial picture both internally and externally.
- Identify suspicious transactions/entities/activities.
- Uncover potential new leads significant to the investigative team.
Intuition and curiosity are the bedrocks of an FBI Forensic Accountant. We don’t stop at the easy answers; we dig through faulty foundations to determine the who, what, when, where, why, how and how much on all financial aspects of a case. We package the financial facts for our law enforcement and judicial counterparts and, if necessary, provide testimony on our findings.
