Fraud Prevention and Detection

Working with your internal teams, we review your operations and identify weaknesses through which fraud or other forms of avoidable loss and possible compliance breaches could occur. Using the many years of fraud investigation experience, we find transactions that could be symptomatic of problems or missed opportunities. We will evaluate a clientís controls, where necessary making cost-efficient recommendations. We help you to investigate and recover losses and work with your internal teams so that the recommended improvements are maintained. In many cases the recoveries we identify will cover our costs by a substantial multiple.
