Association of Certified Fraud Examiners

The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) is the worlds largest anti-fraud group, with over 75,000 members worldwide.

The Certified Fraud Examiner credential is recognised globally as proof of excellence in fraud prevention, detection and investigation.

The WA chapter of the ACFE has been created to extend and enhance fraud awareness amongst like minded professionals.

While we aim to meet regularly in person, at networking and educational meetings, the great distances between towns in WA can sometimes prevent this. All attempts will be made to spread the word via electronic means where possible.
