Red Flags

There are certain warning signs that managers and individuals with supervisory responsibilities should be aware of.

  • Marked Personality Changes in Employees
  • Financial Pressures on Employees
  • Employee Living Beyond His/Her Means
  • Employee Having Outside Business Interests
  • Poor Internal Controls
  • Rising Department Expenses
  • Too Much Control in Key Employees
  • Lax Management
  • Failure to Pre-Screen Employees

While the aforementioned traits do not guarantee that white-collar crime exists in your department, they do indicate a higher likelihood of white-collar crime. Therefore, management should be alert to the possibility of fraudulent activities. If you have reasonable concern regarding possible fraud, Internal Audit should be contacted immediately.
