Forensic Examination Services
Fraud and abuse is a widespread problem that effects practically every organization regardless of size, location, or industry. The typical organization loses 5% of its annual revenue to occupational fraud. The median loss caused by the occupational fraud cases in the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners 2014 Report to the Nations study was $145,000. More than 20% of these cases caused losses of at least $1 million.
Fraud Prevention is a critical tool in maximizing the profitability of any organization. The majority of fraud schemes we have examined could have been prevented at a fraction of the actual cost of the forensic examination. Fraud schemes often mask the real profitability of organizations for a long period of time.
Fraud Detection may affect the longevity of your organization. Detecting fraud quickly will lessen the impact of the fraud scheme on the organization.
Fraud Examination organizes and summarizes both the facts and the cost of the scheme for shareholders, for prosecution, for law enforcement and for insurance companies.
