This webinar will discuss the development and implementation of a new tool to assist APS and its partners in the investigation of suspected financial exploitation of vulnerable adults. The tool, called the Financial Exploitation Investigation Suite of Tools (FEIST), was developed by Karen Webber, forensic accountant, in conjunction with the Bureau of Adult Services of the New York State Office of Children & Family Services (OCFS), under a federal grant from ACL to enhance APS practice. The FEIST assists with client interviews, identification of red flags, the collection of financial and other records, following of investigative leads, formatting of data for further review by a forensic accountant, and assisting with referrals for civil or criminal legal proceedings. This grant, which included access to a forensic accountant for consultations and full reviews, is currently being piloted in several regions of New York.
