Fraud Investigations

Fraud InvestigationsFraud investigations aim to ascertain whether a scam has transpired and collect evidence to safeguard the involved victims. Fraud involves misrepresentation with the intent to deceive; for instance, a company knowingly makes false claims about a product. This misconduct leads to significant financial loss, severe harm, and, in extreme cases, even fatalities. Our fraud investigations commence with an initial consultation between the investigator and the client. The client provides reasons for suspecting deceit and furnishes any supporting evidence. A proficient fraud investigator utilizes this information to uncover additional evidence, employing methods such as surveillance, asset searches, background checks, employee investigations, and business inquiries.

Initiation of Fraud Investigations occurs when an individual intentionally engages in deceptive practices to unlawfully or unfairly gain something. Across most states, fraud can be categorized as either a civil or criminal offense. Although frequently committed for the purpose of obtaining benefits, fraud may also occur with the sole intention of deceiving another person or entity. For instance, making false statements can be deemed fraud under certain circumstances.
