Summary

Fraud, or the use of deception to dishonestly acquire a personal gain, is a global problem affecting economies, businesses and individuals. Bribery, corruption, identity fraud, counterfeit goods, and Ponzi schemes are all examples of fraudulent activities. Fraud is a particularly serious threat to the financial services industry – and it’s on the rise.

Frequently in cases of fraud, unscrupulous employees prey upon unsuspecting co-workers and supervisors, or shrewd third parties use "social engineering" tactics to penetrate a company's defenses. Because successful fraud schemes are hard to detect, it is critical that employees at all levels have a basic knowledge of how these schemes work and how to recognize the warning signs. Proper fraud awareness training is crucial to a culture of compliance.
