The ACFS administers the Certified Fraud Specialist (CFS) professional designation and uses standards established by a 16-member Board of Regents
Being designated a Certified Fraud Specialist validates your education, experience, and skills. It gives you the credentials to help you in a highly competitive job market and, in the eyes of the public, makes you uniquely qualified to handle fraud matters. It can also provide you with the personal satisfaction of knowing your knowledge and skills met, or exceeded, standards set by an accepted national authority.
Responding to member request, the Professional Standards and Admission Committee has created a new Petition for Certification form. The new form contains clearer instructions, guidance on several key issues (e.g. what letters of recommendation should contain), and the new form can be filled out on-line and then printed out on a local printer for signature and mailing.
There are many benefits to obtaining a CFS designation. Not only does it validate your education, experience, and skills, but a CFS designation can give you the credentials to help you be better prepared for a highly competitive job market.
A CFS designation also illustrates the fact that you value professional involvement, maintain an interest in profession-wide concerns, and contribute to the development of the development of the anti-fraud profession as a whole. It can also provide the personal satisfaction of comparing your knowledge and skills to a standard set by accepted national authority.
Thankyou for that information. However, I am more curious with the SuperSearch aspect of the database. Matching to the census records, for example, will be more useful to me than connecting with someone who has "accepted all" smartmatches for a few months, creating a database snarl.
2. John Reid was born 26-June-1823 and is 57 during the 1880 Census and was married to Mary Ann Reed 1828 married 25-Nov-1852 with only a twelve year difference in birth age between the two John Reid's. Is he a Sr John Reid to John Reid married to Martha Catherine Aldridge?
Please Send your advanced findings for I am not sure what is going on here about the secound John Reid. Thank you!
When searching for UK death records would it be possible to have an advanced search feature that includes the county of death. I have a number of people in my tree with no death date (they are very old). I have a name which can produce hundreds of results - with date of birth and a county of death the number of results would be greatly reduced thus improving my chances of finding the right person.
is it possible to see the original documents in record matches? E.g. if you have a birth register. Is there a scanned version of the original birth register entry? I would like to have this because it is the original primary source and if I could get it form MyHeritage it would save me a lot of work in the archives.
It would appear to have arrived - but it only shows the county in the extractable information which mean you have to load up the census view and read the address on the form. It would be so much more useful if the whole address data was in the the summary.
May I suggest that another choice be aded to Confirm and Reject? Many times, I see a smart match that could possibly be valid, but the information listed does not confirm or reject. I may show husband and children: the smart match may show only siblings and parents. Therefore, I cannot confirm or reject. Could there be a category meaning "not enough information"?
In the meantime, you might consider my method. I reject any match that does not have enough info to confirm. However, I first go to "review" and scroll down to the bottom of the page, where I leave a message to the other site manager that this might be a match but there is simply not enough info to be sure. Then, I go back and hit "reject".
I am new to this, and have traced (I think) one side of my family back to the 1600's, but I don't want to claim people that are actually wrong! What are ways to cross-check with other records to make sure I have the right people?
