Embezzlement Investigation


Embezzlement Investigation: Embezzlement is the fraudulent appropriation by a person to his or her own use of property and/or money entrusted to that person's care but owned by someone else. It can often take years for companies to discover the existence of an embezzler, simply because of what is known as "Information Overload". If you suspect embezzlement, ICS is here to serve you with our highly skilled investigators.


Embezzlement Investigation

Embezzlement is the fraudulent conversion of the property of another by a person who has lawful possession of the property.

Many companies suffer losses from embezzlement, but it can be very difficult to trace when the offenses are minor or when the person committing the crime knows how to hide it well.  Many companies do not discover the loss until they are to do a thorough audit in the face of a merger or acquisition.  Money can be embezzled from the cash drawer or petty cash, or it can be slowly drained from corporate savings or credit accounts.  No matter how large or small the offense is, however, you will feel the losses in your bottom line eventually.  Call ICS today for an embezzlement investigation if you suspect that someone in your company is misappropriating property or funds, and we can find out who is doing it, how they are doing it, and what they are doing with the property or funds once it leaves your office or accounts.

Embezzlement Investigation Information:

  • Potential Methods of Embezzlement
    • Falsification of Records to Conceal the Activity
      • Handwriting Analysis
        • If an employee is falsifying records or creating false accounts and writing phantom checks, then an ICS expert handwriting analyst will be able to determine who is doing it by comparing the documents in question with authentic documents
    • Altered Dates or Document Timelines
      • Removing, adding, or changing information and dates on official documents may be done in an effort to conceal embezzlement, but ICS experts can determine the true age of the document, the authenticity of any signature affixed to it, and other pertinent information to determine what is real and what is not
    • Create a false vendor account, supply false bills to the company being embezzled so that the checks appear legitimate
    • Create phantom employees, who are then paid with payroll checks
    • Ponzi-like schemes where early investors are paid with funds received from later investors who are being tricked into believing they will get a high return
  • Forensic Accounting
    • Very detail-oriented, time-consuming process of scouring the company financials to determine where and when losses are occurring, and who is likely to be the culprit
