 | April 26, 2016

Malaysian Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (MACFE) to increase number of training programmes and connect experts in the various fields.


PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (MACFE) hopes to create better public awareness on fraudulent schemes being perpetrated in various industries.

It will do this by increasing the number of training programmes and diversifying into areas which currently lack expertise.

It hopes to coordinate efforts of experts in the field for more collaborative efforts on fraud prevention and deterrence.

“We will make available basic tools for risk assessments and reporting,” it said in a statement today.

It noted an influx of new members joining MACFE and said expertise will be sought to achieve these objectives.

MACFE also announced its new executive committee elected during its bi-annual general meeting held on April 25.

Akhbar Satar was retained as president for 2016/2018. Lee Long How was elected the new vice-president, Kanakaraja Muthusamy as secretary-general, and Raymon Ram as assistant secretary-general.

Aaron Lau In-Tsoi was elected treasurer.

Committee members are Mohd Yunos Yusop, Raveendra Kumar Nathan, Helen Quet Li Huang Chew, Saravanan M Selvaratnam, Hii Hie Lung and Hazminuddin Hussain.

MACFE is a local chapter incorporated in Malaysia to represent the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE), the world’s largest anti-fraud organisation and premier provider of anti-fraud training and education, based in Austin, Texas.

Together with more than 75,000 members from 180 ACFE Chapters in the world, the ACFE is reducing business fraud worldwide and inspiring public confidence in the integrity and objectivity within the profession.

ACFE also provides bona fide qualifications for Certified Fraud Examiners (CFE).
