Counter Fraud Services

Counter Fraud

Are you watertight?
As the recession bites, fraud is increasing and attention needs to be focused more than ever on protecting finances, assets and reputations.



Reducing fraud losses and other financial harm to an absolute minimum is crucial to helping your organisation sustain delivery of services at a time of cuts in spending.

The impact of fraud and related crime can include:

  • Financial loss, which could have a catastrophic impact on business.
  • Compliance and regulatory infringements.
  • Breaches of civil law, resulting in litigation and damages paid to injured parties.
  • Instigation of criminal proceedings.
  • Damaging publicity.
  • Loss of public funds.
