    Presentation: Fraud Investigation in the Corporate Environment

    Speaker: Gabriella Marshall, CFE, CIFI, Special Investigations Unit

    Gabriella Marshall is a Certified Fraud Examiner and a Certified Insurance Fraud Investigator with extensive experience in both corporate fraud investigations and auditing. She is currently a Major Case Consultant with a national insurance company, responsible for consulting on fraud for Texas and New Mexico. Her present duties include investigating insurance fraud pertaining to medical providers, and organized criminal activity, and racketeering.

    While employed previously by Hewlett-Packard and AIG, Ms. Marshall worked many different assignments including fraud investigations in Canada, Brazil, Peru, the United States, and Mexico. Many of corporate investigations resulted in criminal convictions, and numerous others were successfully resolved through negotiation for recovery and settlement.

     Presentation Description:

    Corporate investigations must be transparent, prepared and executed in anticipation of litigation. The investigator’s duty is to uncover the truth of what happened, and present these findings without bias, opinions, or judgments. The seminar will discuss the following: how corporate fraud investigations are selected, investigative and evidence gathering techniques, bad faith, chain of custody, and how the corporate world addresses and resolves fraud.
