One-Step Fraud Prevention

Fraud Prevention in one step? Are you kidding me?

No – not at all.

In fact, it’s easier than most business leaders think to Deter and Prevent Fraud in their organizations. But it all comes down to one critical question.

Right now, if you asked any first level supervisor, manager or executive, what would they say?

Do you feel you have the knowledge and job-based skills needed
to prevent fraud in your areas of responsibility?

Well, we asked.
In one six-month stretch, over 7,000 managers and supervisors attended our live Fraud Prevention training. 96% of them answered:

“No, I don’t have the knowledge or skills –
not with any measure of precision”

So we asked further, “Are you expected to prevent fraud in transactions and relationships you oversee in your work?”

Their answer – a resounding “YES!”

As a life-long auditor, I call it a Major Control Weakness – when expectations and authority exceed knowledge and skills.

Do you agree? Would your managers, supervisors and staff agree if you asked? Are you certain you really want to know the answer?

While a half-dozen actionsare the foundation of an effective business Fraud Prevention campaign (seewww.FraudPreventionPro.com for all six!), one step clearly outweighs all others.

Providing your team members with ‘how-to’ based Fraud Prevention skills training they can use immediately in their work.

Fraud Prevention isn’t just policy, written procedures, occasional management reminders, and general awareness. It’s confident action by every employee at a few critical moments. Like when a supervisor reaches for their computer mouse or picks up a pen. When they click or sign, the transaction in front of them proceeds to the next step – often a payment.

I call this the “The Anti-Fraud Moment”. The moment when transactions are approved.And in that moment, we teach your employees exactly how to:

Look – Ask – Doubt – Resolve

Your people all want to be part of the solution – to help you and other leaders Prevent Fraud. It’s time to give them the skills.
