Forensic Frauds: A study of 42 Cases
by Brent E. Turvey, MS

Abstract: The purpose of this work is to provide a framework for understanding the types of forensic experts engaged in various forms of forensic fraud, their methods and its respective motivations. An original study of 42 fraudulent forensic experts is presented, with a proposed typology. By doing so, it is also hoped that this work will help to define the scope of the problem for those unfamiliar with its landscape and reach. This with an eye towards preventative measures and reforms to be discussed at the conclusion.
