Law enforcement agencies across the United States and around the World are inundated with fraud cases; especially, during the holiday season. Most law enforcement agencies do not have investigators designated to just investigating frauds, leaving fraud cases on the back burner. Most investigators do not like financial crimes because these investigations are voluminous and time consuming.
 
The purpose of this class is to assist participants in investigating and prosecuting seasonal fraud trends through proper organization techniques, triage of case load and arming investigators with tools of the trade. This unique instruction to fraud investigations will result in better organization, prevention and prosecution methods.
