Title: "Forensic Accounting FBI Case Study - Healthcare Fraud in the Greater Houston area"

Description:  Healthcare Fraud is rampant in the Houston and surrounding areas.  Doctors, clinics, hospitals, diagnostics, community mental health centers etc, are all areas where fraud can be found.   These local FBI investigations include money laundering, mail and/or wire fraud, conspiracy and other illegal activities.  Today, we are going to show what a Forensic Accountant in the FBI can contribute to any type of investigation.  Also, we will delve into a Healthcare Fraud investigation from the Forensic Accountant point of view.  This will show how a Forensic Accountant is an integral part of the investigative team.

Bios:  FBI Special Agent Gigi Joyner is a native Houstonian.  SA Joyner attended the University of Southern California where she earned a BS in Business Management and an MBA.  Prior to joining the FBI, SA Joyner had 12 years of telecommunications experience with AT&T, Telecentro, and Teligent Inc.  SA Joyner has been working for the FBI for 19 years.  Her first assignment was in the Los Angeles area, investigating Mail and Wire Frauds, Civil Rights, and Public Corruption.  Currently, SA Joyner is assigned to the Houston Division where she investigated Health Care Fraud (Medicare Fraud) and is now the Applicant Recruiter. 

Kathleen (Kathy) Anderson, has been employed as a forensic accountant with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for 32+ years.  She began her career with the FBI in 1988.  At that time, the job was primarily an administrative position; however, the job grew into a more investigative nature in regards to the financial aspects of the fraud investigations.  Anderson was assigned cases involving Transportation of Stolen Goods, Robberies, Drugs, and eventually settled into Bank Fraud investigations.  After 9/11, she was reassigned to work Healthcare Fraud and has been there since 2001 – 2002.  Currently, FOA Anderson is assigned primarily cases on the HCF squads.  She is the primary contact for all HCF searches arranging for assistance from the FOAs.  In 2007, FOA Anderson became a Certified Fraud Examiner.
