This article discusses some observations in the forensic accounting-based fraud literature. We identify recent advances in the literature and highlight several important issues that are worth noting. The main message of this commentary article is that fraud is complicated, and fraud complexity can significantly impact the way we undertake forensic accounting-based fraud research. The practical implication is that forensic accountants and forensic accounting researchers should incorporate into their practice the complexity of fraud regardless of whether they follow an empirical, experimental, exploratory, analytical or critical approach to fraud investigation.
