A Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE) is a specialist in the detection and/or deterrence of a wide variety of fraudulent conduct -- from discovering employees or executives who misappropriate company assets to assisting investors who are defrauded in the course of commercial transactions. CFE's can be found working as: captain's of industry, accountants, auditors, attorneys, security/loss prevention administrators, investigators, academicians, and law enforcement officials (municipal, state and federal)

Certified Fraud Examiners are employed by most major corporations and governmental agencies in the United States and throughout the world. CFE's are charged with investigating a wide variety of allegations of fraud as either in-house agents or as external consultants. CFE's are also utilized in the private sector, where they provide investigative and consulting services to law firms, business enterprises, and others in the areas of litigation support, fraud investigation, and fraud prevention.

All CFE's must meet the rigorous criteria for admission to the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners. For information on becoming a CFE contact the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners at their web site http://www.acfe.com, or by telephone at 1-800-245-3321.
