In most cases, the actual dollar amount of the theft was $100,000 - $200,000. Most of these fraudsters were employed by the organization for over 5 years and highly trusted with no prior criminal conviction.

Our professionals are trained to focus in on your organization’s weakest areas and to seek out fraud by analyzing records and trends.
