Fraud

Fraud is probably the largest area of crime within the business sector.  It is defined as ”the bringing about of any practical result by a false pretence … The victim must have been deceived by the false pretence and have acted on the basis of it.”  This might involve making a false representation, wrongfully failing to disclose information, abusing a position of trust or obtaining services with the intent to avoid payment.
 
Examples of fraud include: credit card fraud, embezzlement, forgery…
 
BTO has experience of advising clients facing allegations in relation to fraud, embezzlement and other white collar crime. We also assist companies and other organisations in detecting and investigating suspected fraudulent activities of their employees.
