Ideally more effort is best placed on preventing fraud rather than cleaning up the after-effect. Rather than focussing on tackling the problem after it has occurred (most fraud investigations are in effect, a result of a failure of processes and controls), more effort should be focused on the deterrence and prevention of fraud.
The impact of fraud includes:
- Financial loss with a possible terrible impact on the business.
- Reduced morale.
- Wasted management time.
- Damaged reputation.
- Customers lose confidence in your business.
- Increased cost.
- Your business being used for other crime.
