Businesses, as much as individuals, can be victims of fraud. Every business, therefore, should take steps to safeguard itself against fraudulent activities, whatever their source and whatever their nature.
We've all heard the saying, 'Don't put all your eggs in one basket.' When it comes to assigning responsibility for everyday financial transactions, business owners should heed this advice and never give too much control to one employee.
Remember, suspicion is not enough - you need proof before you can act.
Behaviour that looks dishonest often turns out to be perfectly legitimate, so avoid jumping to conclusions or immediately confronting the suspect.
