Forensic Accounting | Fraud Investigation | Elder Financial Abuse Specialist Services
Paul Smith Consultancy provides a unique and specialised service. I can offer Forensic Accounting, Fraud Investigation and Elder Financial Abuse Specialist advice and Investigation. The financial abuse of adults at risk, is sadly often overlooked by the police. The complexities of the victim and difficulties found in an investigation can cause a lack of prosecution of perpetrators. Austerity measures forced upon the police service, have caused a reduction in the police establishment. Police staffing levels have sadly dropped below a level where they are able to provide certain key services. Therefore, although the police recognise a need to investigate certain crimes, they struggle to do so, with often more violent crimes redirecting overstretched resources. A sizeable proportion of fraud is never investigated by the police, this is due predominantly to of a lack of resources and dearth of specialist trained officers. Knowing that victims simply have nowhere else to go, we seek to provide an alternative solution.
