Fraud is a type of crime in which the perpetrator uses a deceitful method to mislead the victim in order to obtain an illegitimate financial gain. These types of crimes occur in many forms, causing substantial losses to companies and individuals.
The investigation of financial crime and fraud is often quite complicated and thus necessitates a systematic and organised method.
How we investigate corporate crime and fraud:
Our team of private investigators, with corporate and police backgrounds, provide you with advanced experience in these types of investigations; collecting evidence to uncover and stop fraud.
If you are suspicious of being a victim of fraud or financial gain crimes, our private investigators can help you immediately to identify early warning signs and access information. In close dialogue with you as the client, we develop an individual, customised investigative strategy to assess the case, collect evidence to uncover the perpetrator/s, examine the extent of the crime, and put an effective stop to any losses.
Typical warning signs of corporate fraud and property crime are:
- Unexplained inventory shortages
- Lack of documents to justify inventory write-offs
- Unexpected cash flow problems
- Sales reports not matching shipping invoices and other documents
- Incomplete or false customer information
- Observing unexplained or suspicious employee behavior
- An employee with excessive control issues or unwillingness to share certain duties
- An employee who frequently asks to work outside of regular business hours
Especially for companies, these types of investigations are sensitive and typically involve concerns about reputation and integrity. Our experienced, private investigators understand this, and thus investigate crimes effectively and in a discreet manner.
All reports and evidence gathered during the investigation are strictly confidential and as the client, you always choose what actions to take in close collaboration with our professional guidance and any legal advisors.
Ethical code of conduct:
As private investigators, we are committed to our ethical code of conduct, preventing innocent persons and companies from persecution. This is a practice we follow in all of our investigations. As such, while investigating the fraud, we will clear any innocent persons and parties of any allegations.
Why many prefer a private investigator:
In general, we find that people, employees, and companies are happy to help us as private investigators. Many prefer private investigators examining a case prior to a police investigation and before any contact with the police is considered.
Our approach is discreet, careful, and done in close dialogue with the client. The client always has full transparency and decides what steps to take as the investigation progresses. The results of the investigation and reports can be presented in court where needed, or can be used for settlements. With a client’s approval, results can also be used to report criminal actions to the police.
