  • Fraud and Forensic Investigation Engagements for Athletes, Entertainers and Other High Profile Clients. Fraud schemes that affect athletes, entertainers, or high profiles clients are at their core, similar to those that affect the general public, making this session relevant for all fraud examiners. But forensic investigations of high-net worth and high-profile clients do often have unique characteristics that can make them differ from other types of engagements. This presentation will explore the unique aspects and challenges to cases involving high-profile clients and includes topics such as navigating ways to address lack of cooperation from partners, investors, and managers relating to interviews and information requests, techniques to quantify amounts where agreements, contracts and documentation is minimal or might not exist, and issues and techniques for conducting analysis in cash-based businesses.
