038 Forensic Accounting with Bob Simpson, Welcome to 2020
Marketing RV with Ranalli & Volpe starts the new decade on the road, pulling up to the accounting firm of Brinker Simpson & Company in Springfield, Pa. to interview Partner Bob Simpson. Lorraine and Gene set out to understand the ins and outs of an accounting firm and how they market their services but became awestruck when Bob mentions the emergence of Forensic Accounting.
Bob proceeded to tell stories about fraud, potential fraud, and the $40B—YES! $40,000,000,000—fraud industry preying on seniors. That’s just seniors and that’s just the amount reported and/or uncovered. Much of the crime goes undetected because victims are too embarrassed to speak out.
In this episode, you will learn what Bob and members of his firm are doing to combat such fraud, with whom they are working, and measures you can take to avoid becoming a victim of identity, tax, and bank fraud.
