This review present some evidence on fraud, forensic accounting, the skills and education of the forensic investigator. Also, some explanation for the diverging views among academics and regulators in relation to detecting fraud are provided. To regulators, I ad-dress the question on why academic research in forensic accounting have little significance to inform policy. Further, I present some rich set of questions and identify a number of important directions for future research in forensic accounting. This paper is intended to stimulate debates and future research of the issues identified.
