Travel and entertainment (T&E) reimbursement fraud is among the easiest type of employee fraud to perpetrate. With blank receipts handed out like candy by service providers and automated tools available for fraudulently altering meal receipts, hotel folios, credit card receipts and other documentation, the temptation on the part of business travelers to abuse their expense privileges is often too great to resist.
Add to the mix the growing incidence of corporate and purchasing card (P-card) fraud, and your accounting, audit and HR departments may have a financial headache that never goes away.
Fortunately, many organizations have fine-tuned some best practices for both detecting and preventing expense-related frauds. This training will highlight many of these, including:
- How to effectively screen for red flags of airline travel fraud
- How to use data analytics to identify falsification of restaurant, hotel and taxi receipts
- Best ways to screen for suspicious corporate and P-card transactions
- Effective controls for minimizing your organization exposure to all forms of T&E and P-card fraud
- Essentials of proactive anti-fraud management targeting expense reimbursement and card fraud
