Fraud Review

The impact of fraud is not only financial – it can create a culture of distrust that may last for years after the incident.

Fraud happens at small-to-mid-sized organizations or professional services providers

Although the media covers only the most sensational examples of fraud, most fraud happens at small-to-mid-sized organizations or professional services providers – even not-for-profit enterprises.

Digital forensics and e-discovery methods are now crucial, not only in proving a case but in proactively identifying potential risk areas for fraudulent activity. CSH’s forensics specialists analyze large data sets, looking for inconsistencies and ferreting out dishonest employees.

Fraud Review

The impact of fraud is not only financial – it can create a culture of distrust that may last for years after the incident.

There are three attributes that commonly trigger fraud: incentive, opportunity, and rationalization. This “fraud triangle” of factors includes personal financial problems, illness of a loved one, stress at home, addictions, overspending and animosity for manager/management that may contribute to shifting the triangle to the point that a fraud occurs.

Our reviews are designed to help identify different types of fraud:

  • Misappropriation or inappropriate use of assets
  • False reporting of operations or performance
  • Avoidance of liabilities and expenditures
  • Improperly obtained revenue or assets
  • Other actions harming the organization’s finances, operations or reputation

Because fraud reviews also help set the tone within your organization that you are serious about reducing the risk of fraud, they can deter potential “fraudsters” from even attempting such actions.

If you’re concerned about the risk of fraud or worried that it has already occurred, our fraud review can help. Our consultants take a multi-phased approach:

  • Phase I – Assessment & Analytics
  • Phase II – Investigation
  • Phase III – Preliminary Conclusion & Follow-on Procedures
  • Phase IV – Reporting & Support
