Could Odd Behaviour at Work be an Indicator of Fraud!

BEHAVIOURAL ANOMALIES: These can range from acute defensiveness and resistance to attending review meetings, through to blaming strategies or even aggression when specific questions are asked about processes or figures. These behavioural anomalies have probably already been noticed through the assessment process or by HR staff. Research shows that internal fraudsters are most likely to be either ‘youngsters who cut across the processes and systems’ or ‘middle aged executives with the authority and a gripe’.

ACTION: Get HR more closely involved. Then if you still have concerns about such people upon closer inspection, all the relevant files need to be pulled and checked, or you might even consider a private fraud investigator to look deeper into the processes used by such high risk people who are usually found involved in the small and large scale corporate fraud.

Mega Fraudsters Are Often NOT Held Responsible For Most of the F

The vast amount of fraud in most developed countries takes place from lots of people stealing more modest amounts from government and from large corporations. So whilst we may occasionally read about the $ multi-million losses perpetrated by individuals, this is comparatively rare.

There are many tens of thousands of people who steal $10 – $10,000 every day through false benefit applications, bogus grants, insurance claims, local authority claims, injury claims, stolen card usage and walking away from utility bills or internet orders. Oddly, the widespread deployment of IT systems to manage corporate fraud and corporate processes often makes business fraud easier, as fraudsters prefer such faceless processes to dealing with real people.

In The Workplace, The Fraudster DOES NOT Often Stands Out From T

Where internal business fraud occurs (i.e. fraud by staff), it is most frequently perpetrated by two distinct groups of people, both equally surprising:

1. Young administrative employees mostly female, as they are usually more familiar with the systems and administrative gaps and may be motivated by an oppressive partner or a drink / drug habit;

2. The male “long service pin” highly trusted manager. Often the corner-stone of the office, who feels he has been overlooked for promotion, is overburdened with debt, work or family and could be suffering from other pressures such as a gambling, drink or drugs habit. ‘Keeping up with the neighbours’ also often plays a part. More recently though, there is increasingly a problem that some of these guys feel that they have been excluded by social media and know they that are either ‘on the shelf’ or worse sat ‘in the exit lounge’.

The psychological entitlement pressures exacerbated by being left technologically behind just become too much. When discovered, people are always shocked that ‘good-old George’ in accounts would ‘go that way’; and ‘good-old George’ is often equally surprised to have been caught.
