Andi McNeal, CFE, CPA

The ACFE Bookstore offers hundreds of resources including books and manuals, self-study CPE courses, the CFE Exam Prep Course, merchandise and more. In this interview, Andi McNeal, CFE, CPA, ACFE Director of Research, offers her suggestion on one must-have ACFE resource to help you in your fight against fraud.

What is your professional background and current role at the ACFE? My background is in public accounting. I worked for a small regional CPA firm doing tax and audit work before joining the ACFE. I am currently the Director of Research for the ACFE; in this role, I oversee the development and production of the ACFE’s educational materials and publications. What ACFE bookstore product would you recommend as a beneficial resource to CFEs? The Corporate Fraud Handbook is my go-to recommendation for CFEs looking to add to their professional library. Why would CFEs be interested in this product? The material covered in the Corporate Fraud Handbook is important and applicable to CFEs in all professional roles. The book walks through the detailed mechanics of dozens of occupational fraud schemes — schemes that can occur within any organization that has employees — and includes practical tips on preventing, detecting and investigating each of these schemes. It provides a thorough primer on how dishonest individuals can defraud their employers and what can be done about it. How is the information in this product useful for CFEs in their professional roles? The Corporate Fraud Handbook is a true desk reference; it’s one of those books that CFEs will reach for over and over, with different sections providing value at different times, based on the specifics of the current cases they’re investigating or the particular area of the organization they’re reviewing. The chapters are broken down by scheme type based on the occupational fraud and abuse classification system (i.e., the Fraud Tree), so readers can jump straight to the discussion that is most pertinent to them.

To initiate this transition, the interrogator/interviewer must understand the subject’s motivation, the basics of effective inquiry, and techniques of ethical and legal persuasion. They must also recognize the process by which those interviewed can deceive — and how deception can be detected. Interviewing and Interrogation demonstrates to interviewers the fundamentals of effective inquiry (208 pages).

The ACFE Bookstore offers hundreds of resources including books and manuals, self-study CPE courses, the CFE Exam Prep Course, merchandise and more. In this interview, John Gill, J.D., CFE, ACFE Vice President – Education, offers his suggestion on one must-have ACFE resource to John Gill, J.D., CFE help you in your fight against fraud. What is your professional background and current role at the ACFE? I have been at the ACFE for 17 years. During that time, I have served as General Counsel, Director of Research, and my current position of Vice President – Education. Before joining the ACFE, I was an attorney in a small civil practice firm. What ACFE bookstore product would you recommend as a beneficial resource to CFEs? I would recommend the new edition of Executive Roadmap to Fraud Prevention and Internal Control by Martin Biegelman and Joel Bartow. Why would CFEs be interested in this product? The word “compliance” is tossed around a lot these days. There are many different types of compliance, and often it is hard for fraud examiners to wade through all the mounds of white papers, articles and journals to find the information directly related to fraud. This book removes the clutter and hands you what you need to know. The authors (both of whom are longtime CFEs) have cut through the rhetoric, and they explain clearly what your organization should be doing with regard to compliance programs and internal controls directly related to fraud prevention and deterrence. How is the information in this product useful for CFEs in their professional roles? As stated in the title, this book provides a roadmap as to what your organization should be focusing on with regard to fraud prevention and internal controls. It’s written for both anti-fraud professionals and executives. For example, the authors start by laying out some basic fraud prevention theory. CFEs will find this information familiar, but that information will not be familiar to the decision makers at your or your client’s organization. I like this approach because it provides CFEs with the tools they need to explain the importance of anti-fraud programs to the people making the decisions. Not only does the book help you understand what you need to be doing, it helps you make the pitch to get it done. Whether you are responsible for fraud prevention inside your organization or you are working from the outside for your clients, I know you will find the book invaluable.
