Fraud. It’s a word that sits uncomfortably in the pit of your stomach.
And it should, because it can have an overwhelming impact to your business and your bottom line. But fraud detection and prevention doesn’t often make it high on the list of expenses for small business owners who are busy thinking up ways to better provide for their customers.
Reported by the FBI as one of the fastest growing US crimes, employee fraud is a major problem for many small and mid sized businesses. A fraud risk management policy needs to be put in place. Guard Point Management can help businesses layout and implement a custom fraud risk detection and prevention policy for any enterprise.

Adding his twenty years of experience in law enforcement and his experience as a licensed private investigator in California give Chris his particular edge in weeding out business fraud and providing fraud risk assessment.
Not enough business owners utilize a business fraud management system
Fraud can cost a business up to 5% of its total revenue.
According to one study from the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE), and the U.S. Department of Commerce further asserts that American businesses lose $20 to $40 billion per year to employee fraud schemes.
