Monetary Fraud Investigation & Investigative Bookkeeping

Worried your profits aren’t quite where they should be? Do you have a system of checks and balances? Do you know the signs to look for regarding employee theft and embezzlement? Do you know how to protect yourself to minimize the possibilities of inside theft?

“It's every business-owners nightmare -- one of your employees is stealing money from you. You never think it's going to happen to you -- especially in a small company, where you think that you're treating your employees like your family and you have a handle on all aspects of your business. But, it happens more than you think especially in times of economic down turn. Employee theft and embezzlement can ruin an entrepreneur or small business owner.

According to the 2008 Report to the Nation from the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, U.S. businesses lose 7% of their annual revenues to fraud. That translates to approximately $994 billion in fraud losses. Small businesses are especially vulnerable. The median loss suffered by organizations with fewer than 100 employees was $200,000. That's even higher than what big companies lose on average. Check tampering and fraudulent billing were the most common small business fraud schemes. This is putting a lot of businesses out of business -- One-third of all business bankruptcies are due to employee theft, according to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. And at least 20 percent of all business failures are the direct result of employee theft, according to the American Management Association.”
