Global study on occupational fraud and abuse
The study contains an analysis of 2,690 cases of occupational fraud that were investigated between January 2016 and October 2017. The date in the report is based on information provided by the Certified Fraud Examiners who investigated the cases. Their firsthand experience with these frauds provides an invaluable resource for understanding occupational fraud and the impact it has on organizations.
The goal of the Report to the Nations is to compile detailed information about occupational fraud cases in five critical areas:
- The methods by which occupational fraud is committed
- The means by which occupationa frauds are detected
- The characteristics of the organizations that are victimized by occupational fraud
- The characteristics of the people who commit occupational fraud
- The results of the cases after the frauds have been detected and the perpetrators identified
