  1. Thank you for this website in Forensic Accounting.
    I am a CPA from the Philippines who is very interested in this topic.

    I will read everything in your website since I do not have the financial means to study further in the US, although I have already
    saved for my airfare.

    Anyway, your website is very interesting for me and maybe more than enough for me.

    More power, Tracey! I hope you can come to the Philippines.

    Very sincerley,
