ICI Financial Crimes

Feb 27 2017 - Mar 3 2017



This ICI foundation specialty course provides investigators with the skills and knowledge needed to investigate cases of fraud, forgery, and other financial crimes.  Fraud and forgery are a constantly changing, pervasive and multi-faceted area of criminal behavior that demands new and evolving investigative procedures.  Students will practice handwriting identification skills, and be provided with instruction in the identification and preservation of evidence involved in computer and credit card crimes, and classification of fraud schemes and organized crime groups.

At the conclusion of this course the student/investigator will be able to:  interpret and apply laws related to financial crimes; properly identify the elements and processes used in the commission of personal identity fraud; and successfully prepare for and assist in the prosecution of a fraud/forgery related case.
