“You never know when you may need the assistance of a forensic auditor or fraud investigation specialist. Sadly, the trouble with most fraud matters is that they go undetected for long periods of time. My suggestion to any person that has any suspicion, even the slightest, is to call us to advise on the way forward.”
Forensic Audit Investigations
Statistically, your exposure to fraud and cybercrime has never been greater than it is today. Your company, like every other, has certainly been impacted by the global COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, many people – including your very own employees – will have felt, or may still feel, the pressure of unmanageable debt. This is always a red flag and a precursor to desperate and, very often, uncharacteristic behaviour.
Fraud or white-collar crimes can cause normally honest individuals to make decisions that they never would have considered.
To deal with fraud or fraudulent incidents effectively, you will require a specific type of investigation. Fraud investigations and their related complexities require considerable expertise from the investigator or investigation team.
Our firm has a dedicated forensic investigation department. Our forensic fraud examiners are experienced and qualified in the field of forensic auditing investigations.
The lead forensic investigator on your case will assist in procuring all evidence and facts to complete a thorough case docket. This docket is used to present evidence in both criminal and civil hearings. Furthermore, our fraud investigation department will also assist in compiling and presenting facts for any disciplinary hearings.
Typically, our forensic audits and fraud investigation department handles cases such as:
- Accounting crimes
- Procurement fraud
- Misappropriation of funds
- Lifestyle audits
- Sales fraud and ‘kick-back’ fraud
- Financial intelligence investigations
- Due diligence investigations
- Vendor fraud
