Forensic interviews: Plan to succeed

via Forensic interviews: Plan to succeed.

Imagine someone taking an automobile to a mechanic for a repair. The mechanic asks, “What’s the problem?” The customer replies, “I’d rather not say. Just take it apart, and tell me what you find.”

Sound crazy? Of course it does, but it’s not that much different from what happens when forensic accountants always start fraud investigations by digging through the financials.

Consider this. What if someone would simply tell the investigator how a fraud was perpetrated—whether the incriminating information was provided by the interviewee intentionally or not? How valuable would that be? How much time would that save compared to a semi-blind search through a company’s books?
