At first blush, payroll fraud might seem difficult to pull off – after all, shouldn’t it be obvious? But a well-hidden fraud is not obvious to most business owners. And, unfortunately, by the time most payroll frauds are discovered, months (or, years) have passed, resulting in losses of hundreds of thousands of dollars. Payroll fraud can occur in any business, in any industry – from the mom-and-pop corner market to a billion-dollar publicly-traded company.

The QuickBooks Audit Trail is invaluable. It quickly bolds and italicizes any transaction that has been manipulated or changed. If more clients are using the Audit Trail report as part of their ongoing monthly review and management of their company, they would likely uncover fraud more quickly, limiting the emotional and financial impact to their organization.

According to the Coalition Against Insurance Fraud, billions in fraudulent claims are made every year in the U.S. This includes all types of insurance, from personal auto to workers compensation to homeowners to health care. It’s also worth noting that any exact estimate is likely conservative, since a lot of fraud goes undetected and unreported.

While no business is immune to the potential for insider fraud, unfortunately, the construction industry is one of the most at-risk. It could be argued that one of the reasons for this is that employees are working without a high degree of oversight: alone at the office while the boss is away or alone at the construction site. No matter the theory as to why, the fact is, the average fraud scheme costs construction businesses $227,000 before it is discovered.

According to the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners
(ACFE), whistle-blowing, as it relates to fraud, is the act of reporting fraud, waste, and abuse. Given that an employee tip initially detects 40% of fraud, whistle-blowers are the first line of defense for businesses.

It can be stated that fraud is the second oldest profession – I’m fond of saying “where there’s money, there’s money to steal.” Even after 15 years as a forensic accountant, it never ceases to amaze me that fraudsters think they can get away with their crimes. All in the name of securing additional cash.

Practice management software is complicated. In fact, most dentists readily admit they rely heavily on trusted employees to manage these systems. Take the time to learn the security controls and functions of the office’s practice management software to understand how the system works, as well as how it can keep track of checks and balances.
