An increasing dependency on remote electronic accounting and financial systems has made it possible for the misappropriation of funds through cyber attacks, identity theft, and other schemes. Criminals today, use more and more complex ways to conceal the source and location of misappropriated assets. As investments in the market are on the rise, investors face all kinds of fraud, including cooked-up or inflated growth stories forming the base of valuation. Also, promoters divert funds of investors for their personal purposes. Such instances of misrepresentation, fraud, and investors’ reliance on the financial information offered have led to forensic financial accounting becoming an integral part of due diligence.
