The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, the world’s largest anti-fraud organisation and leading provider of anti-fraud training and education, recently awarded Julia Lindsay Yates the globally-preferred Certified Fraud Examiner credential.

In order to become a CFE, Julia has met a stringent set of criteria and passed a rigorous exam administered by the ACFE. She has successfully met the ACFE’s character, experience, and education requirements for the CFE credential, and has demonstrated knowledge in four areas critical to the fight against fraud: Fraudulent Financial Transactions, Criminology & Ethics, Legal Elements of Fraud and Fraud Investigation.

Julia joins the ranks of business and government professionals worldwide who have also earned the CFE certification. She is currently Senior Manager for PricewaterhouseCoopers Cayman Islands.

Once qualified, CFEs have the ability to examine data and records to detect and trace fraudulent transactions as well as interview suspects to obtain information and confessions. They are trained to write investigation reports, advise clients as to their findings and testify at trial, as well as be well-versed in the law as it relates to fraud and fraud investigations. They also understand the underlying factors that motivate individuals to commit fraud.

Certified Fraud Examiners on six continents have investigated more than 1 million suspected cases of civil and criminal fraud.

The ACFE is the world’s largest anti-fraud organisation and premier provider of anti-fraud training and education. Together with nearly 55,000 members, the ACFE is reducing business fraud world-wide and inspiring public confidence in the integrity and objectivity within the profession.
