Financial Fraud

Financial fraud can assume many forms; some examples include credit card fraud, insider dealing, fraudulent transactions, Ponzi schemes, tax evasion, investment scams, and manipulation of accounts, to name but a few. Although there is no single model for how financial criminals work, financial fraud perpetrators only have a sole objective, which is to explore a company’s vulnerabilities to achieve personal enrichment through deception and false pretences.

Factors contributing to the rise of financial fraud also vary; they can include:

Performance pressure – management are tempted to enter riskier markets and engage in fraudulent activities to make a quick gain.
Globalisation – the more global a company becomes, the greater the chance of poor communication and controls, leading to a lack of staff vigilance against financial fraud.
Greed – personal greed is the primary motivator for executives and employees to commit financial fraud like embezzlement.
Use of technology – the internet and the use of technology have undoubtedly shaped how financial transactions are conducted and recorded. While they allow us to be more efficient, they are not fraud-proof and their vulnerabilities put companies at risk.
Lack of security – companies may not have the most appropriate security measures to protect themselves.
The rise of the dark web – the dark web, or the internet black market, makes it easier for fraudsters and cyber criminals to hide a multitude of sins, anything from buying and selling of credit card data to laundering of illicit funds.
