Don't miss your chance to watch one of the most popular presentations from the 32nd Annual ACFE Global Fraud Conference. While this presentation was previously recorded, the presenter, Nick Furneaux, will be online answering your questions live during the rebroadcast.

Money stolen via fraud is increasingly being converted into cryptocurrencies, with its movements then effectively hidden from investigators. This session will cover how cryptocurrencies work and how that knowledge can shape the way a fraud investigator discovers its use and follows the money. You will also learn the challenges surrounding seizure of cryptocurrency assets. By looking at different categories of crime, you will understand how cryptocurrencies and crypto-assets are used to either carry out fraud or to obfuscate the movement of fraudulent funds.

You Will Learn How To:

  • Assess how cryptocurrencies work and discover their uses
  • Identify ways cryptocurrencies and crypto-assets are used in fraud-related schemes
  • Investigate cases involving cryptocurrencies
  • Recognize how cryptocurrency addresses are deanonymized
