Could your company be a victim of fraud? Could your staff be falsifying expense and other financial statements? Could staff or suppliers be stealing hard cash or physical assets?
Opportunity to commit fraud often arises when there is a gap or failure in the control over systems, processes or checks in place. In most cases employees do not set out to defraud a company. They see an opportunity – a crack in the system – where their activities may go un-noticed and then they start to rationalize their behavior. A motive is never far away. The key message is that opportunity often comes first and the fraud grows and grows until it is detected – often resulting in huge losses for the employer.
There is obviously a human element to employee fraud. It often involves co-workers and colleagues that may have been in the company for a number of years. It is sometimes difficult for the fraud victims to be objective in such cases, but it is also important for the people investigating any cases to be mindful of this element of relationships and how victims may be feeling.
