  • Forensic Accounting

    Kathleen Day reports on the Freddie Mac investigation in The Washington Post today:

    The report is the result of an eight-month investigation by James R. Doty, a former Securities and Exchange Commission general counsel. Among the steps he and his team of lawyers and forensic accountants took were sealing the offices of 20 employees when they learned documents may have been altered and listening to 11,000 minutes of taped calls by company traders completing the transactions used to smooth earnings.

    The emphasis is mine.  In the current climate of corporate scandal, it looks like at least one job will be in demand.

    testing to see if I can still post to my blog via email. I’m getting ready for a weekend in California.
