Corporate & Business Fraud
In today’s economic climate, corporate and business fraud is ripe on all levels, and though it often goes undetected, it can be catastrophically damaging to both individuals and corporations.
In Depth Investigations have the acquired skill sets to efficiently investigate and uncover corporate and business fraud, using our qualifications in private investigation and surveillance. Our general fraud investigation services are recognised across the country, with our industry experience and networking enabling us to thoroughly investigate fraud throughout WA, and across all other States and Territories of Australia.
It is important to remember that there are lawful and illegal ways to undergo business or workplace fraud investigation, so it’s always best to seek professional help. Our specialist fraud detectives are professionally trained in different areas of business fraud investigation, allowing them to act fast and effectively on any case of suspected fraud.
For the intents and purposes of our investigations, we recognise a legal definition of fraud from the Commonwealth of Australia’s Office of Strategic Crime Assessment:
“inducing a course of action by deceit or other dishonest conduct, involving acts or omissions or the making of false statements, orally or in writing, with the object of obtaining money or other benefit from, or of evading a liability to the employer / corporation / enterprise / individual/government.”
As such, business fraud can come in many forms, from corporate sabotage and insurance fraud, to staff fraud and dishonest practicing. Almost all of this fraudulent activity is generally recognised as illegal, and therefor should be professionally investigated and subsequently rectified.
INSURANCE FRAUD INVESTIGATIONS
Insurance is designed to protect us against risk, not as to a tool to enrich the ensured. When individuals or corporations commit acts with the intent to obtain a fraudulent, or unwarranted outcome from an insurance process, that’s classified as insurance fraud. Alternatively, insurance fraud can also be when insurers deliberately and knowingly deny a benefit that is due to the ensured.
In Depth Investigations conduct insurance fraud investigations on behalf of individuals and insurance companies, as well as government organisations, corporate entities, law enforcement agencies and legal representatives – Our fraud investigators will uncover those exploiting the traditional concept of insurance.
