Counter-fraud Consultancy and Training:                                                                                   

This view is, in our opinion, applicable to understanding of financial fraud and abuse and counter measures. There are, it appears, three inter-related factors involved in the prevailing indifference or even scepticism on the magnitude and impact of this menace on the citizenry. First, information Financial fraud and abuse has by and large, been presented to the public in a haphazard and sensational manner. The public appears to be misled by the tendency of mass media to sensational reporting of financial fraud and abuse. It also appears that no legislative hearing on financial crimes has been conducted as an inquiry, a study rather than as expose or a trial. The public will not, it appears, be educated about financial fraud and abuse until it understands that this menace preys on the economic, social and political order. Second, there is proclivity in our society, even among social scientists, view Financial fraud and abuse as individual matter rather than an ‘organisational’ matter. Criminal behaviours are usually viewed, both popularly and scientifically, as a problem of individual ‘maladjustment’, not as a consequence of participation in social or cultural systems. Consequently, law enforcement personnel are only rarely efficient ‘educators’ of the public, so far as financial crimes are concerned. Third, the confidential nature of much information plagues any law-enforcement agent, criminal justice administrator, or anyone else who would ‘educate’ the public or even supply raw data to persons who would try to organize and analyse it for tactical or strategic intelligence purposes. One element in good police investigative work and good intelligence word is silence. The consultancy and training are aimed at educating corporate and the not for profit institutional leaders, legislators and other people of influence on the menace of Financial fraud and abuse and developing counter policies and systems. 

Counter-fraud Research:                                               

The habit of hearing charges promiscuously bandied to and fro, but seldom probed to the bottom, made men heedless. ‘Lord Bryce (UK). The history of the safe furnishes the illustration of the fact that when the police and others invent devices for foiling criminals, the criminal soon event devices for foiling the protective devices. ‘Seventy-five years ago, the safe was locked with a key. Full-time safe-burglars learned to pick the locks, and the combination lock was invented. The criminals rigged a lever by means of which the whole spindle of the combination lock could be pulled out and the safe opened. When correction was made to prevent this, the burglars drilled holes in the safe and inserted gunpowder or dynamite. Then the manufacturers made the safe ‘drill proof’, and burglars secured harder drills with more powerful leverage. When the manufacturers used harder materials, the clever burglars turned to nitroglycerine, which could be inserted in minute crevices around the door where powder and dynamite would not enter. The safe-makers developed doors that fitted so perfectly that nitroglycerine could not be inserted in the cracks. The burglars then adopted the oxyacetylene torch, and the manufacturers devised a compound which was proof against the torch. Somewhere in this progression the burglars began to kidnap bankers and compel them to open the safe, and to prevent this, the time lock was invented. It is also ‘somewhat paradoxical to observe that systems approach has not been utilized in the study of ‘criminal organizations’ themselves. Information and concepts derived from such study will surely contribute greatly to understanding of ‘organised crime’ and this understanding might in the long run permit police makers to deal with financial crime and abuse by methods which will not do violence to basic freedoms’. Ibid p.90. Researching and application of financial fraud and counter-fraud strategies would help, in or opinion, law enforcement efforts in staying ahead of potential financial fraud and abusers. This is especially poignant in this age of cyber criminality.
