    I find the manuals quite useful. One question though: How about publishing a manual / article on " Handling the Fraud Crime Scene"? This aspect is mostly overlooked because Fraud and related abuses do not have blaring sirens, blood stains,bloomers and broken glass - but still, fraud investigators also have a crime scene!
