Investigation of financial crime uses accounting, auditing, and often analytical skills as part of an ongoing criminal case. Some examples of financial crime investigation would be the examination of employee theft, embezzlement, securities fraud, insurance fraud, and illegal kickbacks and bribes. Forensic accountants may work for such entities as insurance companies, governmental organizations, law enforcement agencies, and banks. The final product of the financial investigation must be a presentation of the sometimes extremely complex financial evidence in a case, in a form that is comprehensible for the average juror in a court of law, and in keeping with legal concepts and procedures.
