Recent studies have shown that one company in five are effected by fraud and that 60% of all frauds are discovered by chance.

Fraud comes in many forms.  The following is a list of various types of fraud that we have investigated:

  • Employee Embezzlement - We have performed numerous investigations of employee theft.  The vast majority were in conjunction with a fidelity bond claim.

  • Management Fraud - This type of fraud usually entails the use of phantom vendors or employees for the purpose to acquire through fraudulent means,   cash or other assets for personal use.  We have been retained in cases which incorporate such techniques.  Normally these are covered by a fidelity bond.

  • Other Types - Other fraudulent schemes include submitting false or misleading reports to agencies such as Bankruptcy Courts (Bankruptcy Fraud), the Internal Revenue Service and others.

  • Intentional Misrepresentations (Financial Fraud) - In contract negotiations, transfers with the intent to defraud or the issuance of fraudulent commercial paper are examples of business fraud covered by the Uniform Commercial Code.   Also, the submission of misleading and knowingly false information for the purposes of submitting an insurance claim may result in criminal charges for insurance fraud.
