Fraud Investigator in Vancouver, British Columbia
Fraud is defined as intentional deception that leads to monetary or personal gain. A fraud investigation is a formal examination into the monetary loss that occurred due to this deceit. Most fraud occurs in the workplace and can include: financial statement fraud, fraudulent disbursements, skimming, cash larceny, payroll schemes, misrepresentation of inventory or expenses, and many others. Utilizing the fraud triangle, created by Donald R. Cressey, is key to preventing and detecting fraud. It states that fraud occurs at the intersection of (1) an opportunity to commit fraud, (2) rationalization or justification, and (3) an offender with financial pressure, a financial problem, or motivation. Most organizations fail to realize that the risk of fraud is high in all sectors. Internal controls are necessary to prevent financial crimes from occurring.
