SAS Investigations have many years of experience investigating fraud in its many forms. A Private Investigator involved in any form of fraud case is faced with a very important operation ensuring that any persons or organisations who are prepared to carry out misleading and illegal activities for financial gain are brought to answer for their actions. A Fraud Investigator will handle all fraud cases as a specialist area of experience.
Fake companies or non-existent products
This is a particular area of fraud can be some of the easiest to setup and can result in “quick wins” for the fraudsters concerned. A detailed setup is engineered and seemingly available products. Support is usually engineered to give the impression of reliability and good trading. Often this fraud is engineered from offshore facilities or those linked to them.
Fraudulent disbursement schemes
This area of fraud could include false statements or values of expenses on statements or claims. Improper use of company cards and finances, claims for disguised non work related expenses, falsifying documentation or receipts, and generally using the companies system for payment of proper expenses and incurred costs in a fraudulent manner.
An Insurance Claim Investigation
can be undertaken by Private Investigators from our specialist personnel to investigate and provide important evidence on false insurance claims. Insurance claim fraud is an ever increasing problem being faced by insurance companies, with an estimated 10 percent of British adults who have submitted a fraudulent insurance claim at one time.
Counterfeiting investigations can prevent or attack the cause of failed companies, destruction of household names, failure of ventures, and loss of customers. The quality and result of counterfeit goods is getting better and better as new methods and equipment is becoming more readily available. Sometimes a company will produce counterfeit goods that are practically indistinguishable from the real object although in the majority of cases a detailed look can reveal the forgery fairly easily. An Investigation carried out by an experienced private investigator can uncover a counterfeiting operation and bring the persons responsible to justice.
There are many areas of fraud investigations that we can assist in:
Fake companies or goods
Insurance or accident fraud
