Fraud Prevention & Forensic Accounting

 

Don’t let your profits go up in smoke.

Small businesses are especially vulnerable to occupational fraud.  According to the 2012 Report to the Nations Certified Fraud Examiners, the median loss suffered by organizations with fewer than 100 employees was $147,000 per incident. The most common small business fraud schemes are check tampering and fraudulent billing.

The implementation of anti-fraud controls appears to have a measurable impact on an organization’s exposure to fraud.
