Term 4 Unit 2 Discussions
Unit 2 Discussion Board (ACC325 Forensic Accounting)
Cary and Elle Bronson had been married for 15 years when trouble arose in their marriage. Cary’s long hours of working had taken a toll on it; he was rarely around even for family functions. The last straw came when Elle found lipstick on the collar of Cary’s shirt and the unmistakable scent of a very expensive woman’s perfume; this wasn’t the first time she had noticed the telltale signs of what appeared to be a clandestine affair. The next day, Elle visited an attorney to begin divorce proceedings. After some small talk, the attorney, Mark Smithson, asked Elle about the major assets accumulated during the marriage.
“Oh, there are the cars—a Jeep Cherokee, a Chevy Suburban, and a Bentley,” she answered.
“A Bentley?” he queried, somewhat surprised.
“Yes,” said Elle. “Our restaurant, The Roasted Duck, has done very well over the years.
We began the business with almost nothing and both worked there until Karen, our second child, was born. At that point, I became a stay-at-home mom and left every¬thing to Cary.”
“I’ve eaten at The Roasted Duck—the food is excellent,” Mark said.
“Thank you,” replied Elle.
“Is this the only source of income for you and your husband, Mrs. Bronson?” he asked.
“Yes, other than some interest and dividends,” she answered.
She and the lawyer discussed other matters pertaining to the divorce. He told Elle that he would obtain information from Cary’s attorney so that an equitable division of assets could occur and the issue of the custody of their children would be settled.
Two weeks later, Elle received a call from Mark. Through the discovery process, Cary’s attorney had submitted a valuation of the restaurant that seemed unusually low and had not listed any other assets that could account for the house and vehicles that the Bron¬sons had acquired and the private education that they had provided for their children.
“That can’t be right!” Elle exclaimed.
“Well, it certainly doesn’t look right,” Mark said, “I’ll look into this some more and let you know what I find.”
After he hung up the phone, Mark called Cary’s attorney. “This value placed on the restaurant doesn’t make any sense. What’s your take on this?”
After a short pause, the attorney replied, “Cary told me that the restaurant business is not doing well and, thus, the value has declined.”
After Mark hung up the phone, he pondered the situation: There must be an answer to this mystery. One thing’s for sure; if Cary isn’t telling the truth, he might as well change the name of his restaurant to The Cooked Goose.
What evidence (i.e., physical, documentary, and observational) could be collected to determine whether the valuation is correct? How could you go about collecting this evidence?
Assume for a moment that the valuation is correct. What other sources of money could Cary have to maintain his family’s lifestyle? How would you test your theories?
Unit 2 DB: Personal Fraud (ACC430 Accounting Information Systems)

Frequently asked questions
How soon can I get my paper done?
It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.
Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.
We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.
Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?
All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.
What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?
Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!
Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?
We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.
I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?
Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.
