Dear John Smith,
The City of Toronto - Risk Management and Information Security Department and The New York City Sheriff’s Office recently both
recognized the CFE credential for hiring and promotional purposes. They have
plans to work toward having all current agents achieve this valuable credential.
These two agencies are part of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiner’s
(ACFE) Law Enforcement and Government Partnership . These agencies join the ranks of government agencies
such as the FBI, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, the Government
Accountability Office, the Department of Defense, and the Criminal
Investigations Division of the Internal Revenue Service.
Employers around the world know the value of the CFE credential, and
they seek out the expertise that comes with it. Becoming a CFE provides you with
a strong foundation for a variety of career choices by equipping you with the
tools you need to excel in the fight against fraud. Become a CFE!
Join the ranks of
your colleagues who have already earned the CFE credential. The ACFE is here to
help you along the way. Please feel free to contact me anytime.

TIP #1 - How do I begin studying with the CFE Exam Prep Course? First, we recommend you begin the Prep
Course by answering all questions in the database correctly at least once.
If you incorrectly answer a question, it will return to the question pool and
you will be asked it again at a future time.
TIP #2 - Is it true or is it
If any part of the question is false, then
the entire statement is false. However, if part of a statement is true, the
entire statement is not necessarily true. Read through each statement carefully
and pay attention to the qualifiers and keywords.
- Qualifiers like never, always, and every mean that the
statement must be true all of the time. Usually these qualifiers lead to a false
- Qualifiers like usually, sometimes, and generally mean
that the statement can be considered true or false depending on the
circumstances. Usually these qualifiers lead to an answer of true.
- Pay close attention to words like NOT, FALSE, and INCORRECT in questions. One word can change the entire meaning of the sentence.
Tip #3 - Do I have to purchase any additional reference books? Not necessarily; the Fraud Examiners Manual gives you a detailed explanation of the answer
to each study question.
In this video, ACFE
Vice President - Education, John D. Gill, J.D., CFE, offers advice on how
to take advantage of the Fraud
Examiners Manual, which is included with your CFE Exam Prep Course.
Congratulations to all members who became Certified Fraud Examiners in the last 60 days. More

Did You Know?
Practice exams are designed to
test your knowledge in each of the four sections and simulate the experience of
taking the CFE Exam. Each practice exam contains 125 questions. Like the CFE
Exam, the practice exams are timed and you are allotted 75 seconds to answer
each question. You may go back and change an answer for a previously completed
question as long as there is time left on the question timer.
