    Direct Reports to ACFE

    Persons wishing to file a grievance against a member of ACFE may do so by sending a written statement of their complaint to the attention of Jacob Parks, ACFE Associate General Counsel, who is responsible for investigating disciplinary complaints. There is no specific form the complaint must take; a letter or email is fine. The complainant should include a full explanation of the alleged misconduct along with any documentary evidence he or she may have to support the allegations. Mr. Parks's email address is jparks@ACFE.com. His mailing address is:
