Staff whispers and rumors “that all is not right” should always be taken seriously. These are, however, so often overlooked by senior management.
ACTION: Listen, take all such rumors seriously and investigate the reality.
Anti-fraud consultancy UKFraud.co.uk has published a list of 10 common early warning signs that could alert management that fraud may be occurring in their organization. The list draws upon UKFRAUD.co.uk’s substantial experience across an international client base, ranging from major financial institutions, public sector bodies and corporations to SMEs and non-profit making organizations. The list works on the assumption that whatever tools they use, be it IT-based cons and false accounting or other traditional scams, the warning signs are often the same. As UKFraud.co.uk believes that awareness of the signs and a sound approach to countering them can often deter many opportunistic incidents of fraud, it has published the list to help executives benchmark their own operations. Suggested actions that can be taken to counter the risk of fraud are given following each sign.
