This is a bit of a tongue in cheek question but it seems that every time I log into AccountingWeb there is another news story relating to the criminal activity of an accountant. Does this mean that accountants are criminally more active than other professions or are they just very bad at getting away with it? Could it be because they are dealing with individuals with large bank balances that they are coveting their neighbours ox and not only that have access to lead the ox to their own stable? Have there been any studies carried out as to which professions are guilty of carrying out the most offences?
Answers on a postcard please.
