According to the FBI, "white-collar crime is ... synonymous with the full range of frauds committed by business and government professionals ... characterized by deceit, concealment, or violation of trust .... The motivation behind these crimes is financial--to obtain or avoid losing money, property, or services or to secure a personal or business advantage." CPAs can and should play a crucial role in preventing and detecting white collar crime, as well as in prosecuting the perpetrators. This session will explore whether we are up to this challenge, heighten awareness regarding the CPA's role as a front-line defender of the public interest, and assess whether we are deserving of the public trust we enjoy.
