HIGH POINT, N.C., Oct. 13, 2009 – High Point University accounting and business students had a special opportunity to learn about tax fraud thanks to the “Adrian Project,” a unique program led by special agents of the Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation department.

The event, held on campus on Oct. 1, included an interactive training seminar on tax fraud and offered a real-world experience in forensic accounting. It also introduced students to career opportunities in criminal fraud investigation.

During the day’s activities, students worked on hypothetical fraud cases that included tax fraud, embezzlement, drug trafficking and other crime scenarios. At the end of the day, students presented their findings.
