I Found Fraud
The Acuity Forensics Top 10 Action Plan is meant to highlight some of the most important steps you can take when fraud is found or suspected. These action items are highlighted here to help you regain control of your organization, secure key evidence, and timely contact the professionals who can assist you through this process. You may find that for your organization, some steps are necessary and some are not. You may also find that you need to execute them in a different order than listed here.
When considering fraud prevention and detection tools, it is important to understand that one size does not fit all. And, as an organization expands or contracts, these tools (or processes and procedures), need to be reconsidered to ensure they continue to meet your goals and objectives.
Segregation of duties and internal controls work best when employees understand the importance of their roles, and that implementation of these strategies are not due to their untrustworthiness, but rather because we want to keep your assets safe and your employees safe in their jobs.
Red Flags Of Fraud
During the course of more than a decade investigating white collar crime, we have identified common themes that are associated with most fraud cases we’ve investigated. It is important to understand and heed these red flags, but it is also important to note that these red flags do not constitute “proof” of actual fraud. It takes documents and information to prove any fraud case.
