The ACFE is the world’s largest anti-fraud organization and premier provider of anti-fraud training and education. Together with nearly 65,000 world-wide members, the ACFE is reducing business fraud and inspiring public confidence in the integrity and objectivity within the profession.

Based in Austin, Texas, the ACFE was founded in 1988 by preeminent fraud expert and author, Dr. Joseph T. Wells, CFE, CPA. Dr. Wells’ insight as an accountant-turned-FBI agent led to the formation of a common body of knowledge known today as fraud examination.

Locally, the New Orleans ACFE Chapter has members in many industries:  Accounting, Law Enforcement, Health Care, Insurance, Education, Banking, Retail, Public Utilities and in many branches of City, Parish, State and Federal government.

We exist to combat fraud, waste, abuse and corruption in New Orleans and around Louisiana.  We aid the public and the profession by providing cost-effective training to build knowledge and awareness of fraud.
