Accounting Fraud & Financial Forensics
Accounting fraud is serious. No business owner wants to imagine that their employees are stealing from them, but statistics show it happens daily and that small businesses are the most vulnerable. It is estimated that 75 percent of all theft goes undetected.

I was most impressed with Yeo & Yeo in dealing with an embezzlement issue. A quick phone call resulted in a certified forensic auditor in my office within 24 hours. The auditor led us through the process and stayed with it through prosecution of the case. The response and work of the auditor was instrumental in recovering the money for the school district.
