Internal fraud can cost financial institutions money and time that can’t be recovered. When the embezzler hasn’t been identified, human emotions run high! Investigations launched in panic with the wrong leaders may cause unexpected complications. This eye-opening presentation will explain what not to do. Staff who haven’t been trained on internal embezzlement may cause flawed investigations, harassment charges, and unsolved losses. This program will explain 15 errors that can result in a failed investigation. Knowing these errors will enable your institution to establish an action plan that will protect you when the unthinkable happens.
