Regardless of industry, profession, position, race and religion, amongst other variables, there are individuals that will be motivated to commit fraud across organisations and businesses.

Regardless of industry, profession, position, race and religion, amongst other variables, there are individuals that will be motivated to commit fraud across organisations and businesses – fraud is ‘an intentional act or omission that is designed to deceive another person, resulting in a gain for them and a loss for their victim’.

We’ve seen first hand, incidences of occupational fraud across numerous industries and it amazes us the reasons the perpetrator gives when caught, from ‘I didn’t realise I had crossed the line’ to ‘I thought that was a legitimate expense’ to ‘I had a lapse of judgement on this occasion’.

According to the ACFE (Association of Certified Fraud Examiners), more than half of all occupational fraud came from these four departments:

1. Operations (15%)
2. Accounting (14%)
3. Executive/Upper Management (12%)
4. Sales (11%)

And there are 7 key behavioural clues displayed by fraudsters to be aware of which we capture in this video …so please beware everyone!
