ACFE Hosts Inaugural Law Enforcement Government Anti-Fraud Summit



The Association of Certified Fraud Examiner’s first-ever Law Enforcement Government Anti-Fraud Summit will be November 21 in Washington, D.C., at the Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill.


Fraud is a costly issue in government; in the 2016 ACFE Report to the Nations on Occupational Fraud and Abuse, 18.7 percent of the reported fraud instances occurred in government entities. Although the instances of reported fraud in the government occurred at an equal frequency between local, state and federal government, cases that occurred on the federal level cost a median of $194,000 each — a noticeably higher level than the median cost of fraud at the local and state government levels ($80,000 and $100,000, respectively).


Speakers will include former FBI Special Agent and President and CEO of Coleman Worldwide Advisors, Gregory Coleman, who was responsible for the criminal case against “Wolf of Wall Street” Jordan Belfort; Tom Caulfield, CFE, CIG, CIGI, Co-Founder, Procurement Integrity Consulting Services, LLC, who has more than 38 years of government service; and a number of other financial enforcement experts.


Concurrent sessions will explore hot topics in bribery and corruption investigations, technologies used by fraudsters to hide their tracks and more. This summit will offer an invaluable opportunity for top agents from government and law enforcement fields to network with their peers and trade best practices for detecting and preventing fraud.
