    Oscar Harvin is an assistant professor of accounting at Sam Houston State University. Dr. Harvin obtained his PhD from Florida Atlantic University and is a certified public accountant as well as a certified fraud examiner. He is currently in the process of creating an interdisciplinary certificate of fraud examination program that will supplement the education of accounting, criminal justice and computer science college students. His academic research examines the various factors that impair the ability of auditors to detect occupational and financial statement fraud. Another objective of his research is to inform both academicians and practioneers of the various fraudulent schemes that are being conducted by criminals.

    He has over two decades of auditing and fraud related professional experience. His expertise in conducting investigations from a financial perspective was developed during his many years as a Special Agent with the Criminal Investigation Division of the Internal Revenue Service. During his years as a special agent, he investigated crimes that involve tax fraud, Ponzi schemes, child pornography, domestic terrorism, money laundering and other criminal activities. Professor Harvin leverages his vast professional experiences to prepare students for careers that involve fraud examination such as auditors, investigators, cyber security, law enforcement and other fraud related careers
