CRI Group Once Again Joins Movement to Shine Spotlight on Fraud

International Fraud Awareness Week kicks off Nov. 16, 2014 worldwide

Fraud costs organizations worldwide an estimated 5 percent of their annual revenues, according to a study conducted by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE). If applied to the 2013 estimated Gross World Product, this translates to a potential projected global fraud loss of nearly $3.7 trillion.

The seriousness of the global fraud problem is why CRI Group will be once again participating in International Fraud Awareness Week, Nov. 16-22, 2014, as an official supporter to promote anti-fraud awareness and education. The movement, known commonly as Fraud Week, champions the need to proactively fight fraud and help safeguard business and investments from the growing fraud problem.

CRI Group joins hundreds of organizations who have partnered with the ACFE, the world's largest anti-fraud organization and premier provider of anti-fraud training and education, for the yearly Fraud Week campaign.

As a global supplier of risk management, forensic accounting, due diligence and background screening services for some of the world’s leading business organizations, CRI Group is uniquely positioned help raise awareness of fraud and push the goal of Fraud Week forward. 

At a time when fraud is greatly affecting businesses and hurting their bottom line, CRI Group excels at deterring, detecting and investigating such crimes. A business intelligence network in over 80 countries allows us to get local knowledge in places our competitors cannot.

We achieve success using a global network of professionals specially trained in investigative due diligence, financial crime investigations, counter fraud and counter corruption solutions and third-party risk management.
