Who should attend:
The Wicklander-Zulawski Seminar on Non-Confrontational Interviewing Techniques for Fraud and Financial Crimes is designed to educate professionals to conduct more effective interviews resulting in quicker admissions and better statements. Participants in these seminars include forensic auditors, financial analysts, special agents and fraud examiners  These techniques enable interviewers to expand  admissions into other areas of unknown fraudulent activity and identify the methods that were used to commit these frauds .

Our expert instructors provide several techniques including  non-confrontational interview techniques to overcome resistance, offer rationalizations, handle denials, detect deception and evaluate truthfulness. The non-confrontation WZ Method has been  recognized world wide  for the way it produces faster and more accurate results.  In many cases, admissions are achieved without the suspect ever making a denial or proclaiming his innocence.


Hello Shane,
I’d just like to say thank you, again, for your method regarding the “honest” employee and the “obstinate” employee. The method has actually assisted in the recovery of separate amounts of $3,600.00, $2,800.00 and $173,000.00 in cash-thefts in just the past two months. The total recovery for the year: $465,000.00 in cash and store product. Thanks again.
