When fraud is suspected

Before taking any steps to help a client that may have suffered a fraud or misappropriation of assets, ask yourself the following questions:
  • Do I possess the requisite professional competence?
  • Do I have the necessary experience/qualifications?
  • Will my assistance impair my independence and preclude me serving my client’s attest needs?
  • Am I conflicted out?
