  • Examine the fraud indicators and begin to spot when fraud might be happening
  • Describe your responsibilities and what to do when you suspect fraud

Course Introduction

Fraud within organisations can take several forms, which are identified by the UK Fraud Act 2006 as three primary offences; false representation, failing to disclose information and abusing positions of trust. Fraud always involves deception of some type with the aim of illicit gain or advantage or disadvantage to another person.

Fraud is relatively widespread and should be taken very seriously, as fraud crimes can have severe consequences for both business and individuals. The scale of fraud nationally and internationally is huge and so it should not be underestimated.

This e-learning course aims to raise awareness of fraud, providing guidance and information that will help ensure employees are not only able to identify the possibility of fraud within or from outside the business, but also appreciate their responsibilities regarding reporting suspected fraudulent activities.
