Fraud

Financial institutions and commercial companies of all sizes are prime targets for malicious employees and scammers from outside the company.

Since the early 2010s, a form of fraud involving the impersonation of a company’s top executives has become increasingly common. Its many iterations share the common theme of identity theft used to prompt the execution of False International Transfer Orders (referred to as “FOVI” in French).

Faced with this type of fraud, which is often traumatising for its victims, companies and their insurers must be able to count on trusted, competent, and reactive loss assessors.

Our loss adjusters, all former auditors, are accounting experts with a perfect understanding of the issues related to internal control. This expertise enables them to analyse the most complex fraud mechanisms and to assess the losses suffered by the fraud’s victims.
