Employee Fraud Schemes

Occupational fraud and abuse occurs under many different schemes. Fraud can range from the theft of minor office supplies to detailed money laundering involving numerous people. Due to the clandestine nature of fraud, not all illegal acts are detected and much of the fraud that is detected is not reported or prosecuted. The majority of fraud investigations evolve from allegations that have come to the attention of management, fellow employees or outside consultants.

CAN YOUR ORGANIZATION AFFORD A 6-FIGURE LOSS?

In its 2016 report to the Nations on Occupational Fraud and Abuse, the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) estimated:

  • The median loss caused by occupational fraud to be $150,000.
  • Nearly one-quarter of frauds amounted to at least $1,000,000.
  • The fraud lasted a median of 18 months before being detected.

>>Guidance from the ACFE suggests that organizations with a fraud risk management program experience lower fraud losses than from organizations without a program.<<
