Forensic Accounting Board Resigns
All members of the American Board of Forensic Accounting, the advisory board behind the American College of Forensic Examiners Instituteâ€™s (ACFEI) Certified Forensic Accountant credential have recently resigned. The unanimous resignation comes amid questions about the legitimacy of the credential and the organization, as a whole.
According to accountingtoday.com, the board resigned en masse after learning from a third party that ACFEI founder, Dr. Robert Oâ€™Block, had been planning to secretly sell the organization. As a result, former board members have cancelled all future speaking engagements, including an ACFEI conference scheduled for May in Tulsa, OK.
