3,000 attendees from around the world were in San Antonio for the latest in anti-fraud education, networking opportunities and more. Share the excitement of the 25th Annual ACFE Global Fraud Conference with the highlights, videos, photos and news from the event.
A former attorney, Humberto Aguilar served 77 months in prison for money laundering and participation in a client conspiracy to violate the importation of dangerous narcotics. During the final lunch session he told attendees, "There should be a law that if you are under 30, you're not allowed to make a million dollars. Because you don't appreciate it. Because you say after the first million, 'I can make another one.'"
*The ACFE doesn’t compensate convicted fraudsters.
Dinesh Thakur, the whistleblower in the Ranbaxy USA drug fraud case and recipient of the Cliff Robertson Sentinel Award, said to attendees during the Wednesday closing General Session that "there is more of a need for you — with all the wonderful work you do in the financial area — to expand that and look at health care fraud.”
James D. Ratley, CFE, ACFE President and CEO, delivers a message welcoming attendees to San Antonio and touches on the changes the ACFE has seen since its inception 25 years ago.
ACFE founder and Chairman, Dr. Joseph T. Wells, CFE, CPA, gave a final address to attendees at his last ACFE Global Fraud Conference, including 10 key pointers to fighting fraud. "It's hard for me to put into words what this organization has meant to me. But I didn't make the ACFE what it is, you did."
I think the ACFE has embraced the international flavor in its membership, which is very important because when you're involved in investigations, some of them may take you across borders."
