Welcome at AFE

In the age of technology advancement, society at large is more and more vulnerable to frauds. We are under constant threats to being duped at the individual level as much as at the corporate level. The government machinery is under tremendous pressure as frauds of unprecedented proportions are being unravelled every day. We are ill-equipped and unprepared to face this technology-driven assault. The National economy is getting body blows of enormous scams. It was under these circumstances that the Association of Fraud Examiners came to be established.
