Help-Wanted: Fraud Investigators

From The New York Times

Recently, the Federal Bureau of Investigation announced that the number of open mortgage-fraud investigations was more than 1,600 at the end of fiscal 2008, which ended Sept. 30, compared with 881 two years earlier. In addition, 530 corporate-fraud investigations were open, it said.

The bureau is recruiting people to help with these investigations, including those with experience in computer science and accounting. People who speak a foreign language and those who are certified fraud examiners also have an advantage. Certification is a credential offered by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners that notes proficiency and experience in fraud prevention, detection and deterrence.

Philip S. Deming, who runs Philip S. Deming & Associates of King of Prussia, Pa., started his career with the Treasury Department and has advanced degrees in human resources development and human resources management. In one case that he investigated, he found that an employee had padded an expense account. In another, he discovered that a woman had fabricated a college degree.

The need to investigate fraud these days is so great that Mr. Deming has hired temporary workers — including lawyers, private investigators and certified fraud examiners — who are paid $150 to $275 an hour.
