Fraud Investigations

     In the broadest sense, a fraud is an intentional deception made for personal gain or to damage another individual. The specific legal definition varies by legal jurisdiction. Fraud is a crime, and is also a civil law violation. Many hoaxes are fraudulent, although those not made for personal gain are not technically frauds. Defrauding people of money is presumably the most common type of fraud, but there have also been many fraudulent "discoveries" in art, archaeology, and science.

    Fraud can be committed through many methods, including mail, wire, phone, and the internet (computer crime and internet fraud). The difficulty of checking identity and legitimacy online, and the ease with which hackers can divert browsers to dishonest sites and steal credit card details, the international dimensions of the web and ease with which users can hide their location, all contribute to making internet fraud the fastest growing area of fraud.

       A fraud investigation tries to determine whether fraud has taken place and tries to detect evidence if fraud has occurred. Just as there are different types of fraud and fraud-related crimes, there are different types of fraud investigations. Insurance fraud investigations, for example, try to uncover those who make false claims to get insurance money.

   In some cases, these types of investigations also uncover insurance companies who refuse to honor legitimate claims. Workers compensation investigations, on the other hand, uncover employees who try to unrightfully claim compensation for injuries they do not have. They also uncover companies who do not pay legitimately injured or ill employees. Corporate investigations often try to uncover fraud in companies while financial investigations and accounting investigations often try to determine whether any financial fraud has been committed. Identity theft investigations try to determine whether someone's identity has been stolen and used to perpetrate fraud. General fraud investigations cover all other areas of fraud.

      If you are the victim of fraud, you may lose significant amounts of money, and, in some cases, your good name. Stopping fraud is in everyone's best interests, but if you have been a victim yourself, a fraud investigation can be the first step to getting compensation or your money back. Contact us to take that first step.
