This week is International Fraud Awareness Week.  The business of fraud has been going on for ages, but the general practice of forensic accounting was only really formalized about 100 years ago.  The following infographic, produced by New England College’s School of Graduate and Professional Studies, takes you through a forensic accounting journey that starts with the formation of the FBI in 1908 and ends with Bernie Madoff in 2009, with a lot of information about the “industry” of forensic accounting included as well.  Enjoy!
