AEM Launches Fraud Prevention Service

Fraud is never a pleasant topic. But in this day and age it's one that can't be ignored. That's why we're introducing a new service designed to help you prevent and detect occupational fraud. Generally speaking, occupational fraud is when an employee deliberately misuses or misappropriates employer-owned resources or assets. Most fraud occurs because an opportunity presented itself and the employee wasn't caught, which can happen when an organization's growth outpaces its administrative capabilities. Any instance of fraud could potentially devastate its reputation, relationships, and revenue. 


To help you prevent fraud schemes that tend to disproportionately victimize small to midsize organizations, we follow a proven three-step process. Our service package can be totally customized to your organization; it can be as extensive or limited as you need. While specifically designed to prevent fraud, it can also help you prevent accidental loss through a robust system of controls. 


If you've ever felt like you're spending too much time away from the office or if you rely on one or two key employees, this service might be for you. To learn more about how we can help, please contact Darin Styles at darin.styles@aemcpas.com or 952-449-6212, or talk to your AEM partner. 
Taking steps to prevent fraud is an investment that will pay dividends in years to come. We look forward to the opportunity to be part of your solution.
