Investigating Without a Badge: Part One of the Series of Three

We’ve all read stories about amateur sleuths stumbling upon a crime, and deciding to investigate, but the bumbling author had the amateur blundering about, attempting to discover whodunit, and only succeeds because implausible, convenient coincidences allow said amateur to follow a trail of clues only a complete fool could miss. Hardly a satisfying read!

Matthew Schwartz, investigator reporter who has won more than 200 awards for reporting and writing, including 4 Emmys and 4 Edward R Murrow Awards. Author of Confessions of an Investigative Reporter, he will talk about investigating all manner of fraud, scams, con artists and criminals during his 44-plus years as a reporter in New York City; Tampa, Florida; Cleveland, Ohio; Richmond, Virginia and Utica, New York before joining KVOA-TV, News 4 Tucson in 2013.

Matthew will share the tools and techniques he has learned; he has promised a tip sheet, as well. Learn how he unraveled complex frauds, corruption and exposed countless criminals, swindlers and other con artists.
