Financial Fraud
Combining our experience working with the IRS, the Cook County States Attorney's Office Financial Crimes Unit, and our specific education in the accounting field, Kennealy & O'Callaghan are experts in this particular arena of fraud. The National White-Collar Crime Center estimates that the annual losses from white collar crimes can range anywhere from $260 billion to $1 trillion! Clearly by these statistics we can conclude that it is difficult to avoid fraudulent transactions and asset misappropriations. Fraud can be summed up simply as trickery, and by its very nature involves deception and falsehood. Our investigators are trained to look for suspicious and improper accounting procedures. We will help you determine if fraud did occur, the extent of the monetary loss, and determine the source(s) of the fraud.
