The number and level of fraudulent activities are on the rise. We can help catch fraud, nip it in the bud and prevent it from reoccurring.
Fraud is becoming very easy to commit nowadays. This is primarily due to the modern world being dominated by electronics and the internet age. Traditional locks have almost universally been replaced by electrical systems. While earlier, transferring money from one bank account to another required using checks signed by the account owner, in today’s internet age, such transfers can be effected in seconds. All one needs is a few passwords. Since a large number of people are becoming experts in hacking devices and accounts, fraud is increasing. However, there has also been a rise in the quality of technology to help in fraud investigations. Thus, while it is easier to commit fraud, it is also easier to get caught.
Business Identity Theft
Nowadays, identity theft is so rampant that it has become a house hold word. Even young kids are well aware of what identity theft is. An Identity thief, while commonly targeting individuals have come to the realization that targeting a business is much more lucrative, cost – effective and rewarding. This has created a recent near epidemic of cases of business identity theft. Identity thieves are skilled and manipulate regional and national registries to get access to sensitive tax and bank account information about companies. They then target these companies, often causing losses in the six figure range by the time they are caught and shut down.
Insurance fraud is, was and will always be one of the most major challenges facing the insurance industry. While there are a large number of genuine claims, there is also a sizable portion of fraudulent claims. Being wary of these claims, insurance companies have in general made the process of settling claims a very painstaking tiresome one, earning them bad reputations. However, we can easily detect insurance fraud and can help insurance firms safeguard themselves against such clients. We can work to find out exactly how someone damaged their car, or we can actually see whether an item reported lost or stolen is actually lost or stolen.
Computer fraud is also fast gaining popularity. As mentioned earlier, the internet allows remote access to any individual’s bank accounts, amongst other details. At Private Investigators UK, we employ advanced software to perform data analysis to check if a particular computer has been used for committing fraud. This software checks if there is an inexplicably large amount of transactions performed at that system. This is especially suspicious if the number is just below the maximum number allowed before a higher up is notified. It checks for frequently occurring transactions in similar large, rounded off amounts and much more.
