AGH's audit team can help investigate and mitigate fraud within your organization. Our team leverages its vast experience and wide-ranging knowledge of industries and accounting best practices to help investigate and mitigate fraud.
Organizations that suspect fraud, embezzlement or other inappropriate or illegal financial activity
Organizations at high risk for fraud based on some aspect of the organization's operations — for example, businesses that take in a large volume of cash daily, have a history of fraudulent attempts, or have high turnover in positions with asset-management responsibility
Organizations that would be catastrophically injured if fraud occurred due to loss of the organization's credibility
Protect assets by reducing an organization's risk of fraud
Provide reassurance to external stakeholders through recommend action of internal controls
Discover or confirm likelihood of presence or absence of fraud and gathers evidence to support bonding claims and/or prosecution, if required
When fraud may be suspected or even recognized, certified fraud examiners specialize in using document trails, interviews, and other methods of investigation to uncover fraud, if it exists, and build a case for prosecution. Fraud examiners are trained to detect the myriad of ways thieves, embezzlers and others can steal an organization's assets and cover their tracks.
At the prevention level, a certified fraud examiner can help an organization protect itself from fraud ranging from simple cash register theft to financial statement manipulation at the highest level. By examining the organization's risks throughout its operations and recommending internal controls and processes to safeguard assets, a fraud examiner can help reduce the losses a company sustains from fraud, and prevent many opportunities for fraud.
