Abstract

This review present some evidence on fraud, forensic accounting, the skills and education of the forensic investigator. Also, some ex-planation for the diverging views among academics and regulators in relation to detecting fraud are provided. To regulators, I address the question on why academic research in forensic accounting have little significance to inform policy. Further, I present some rich set of questions and identify a number of important directions for future research in forensic accounting. This paper is intended to stimulate debates and future research of the issues identified.
