Fraud and Forensic Accounting

Fraud and Forensic Accounting

Fraud can occur anywhere, at any time. The typical organization loses an estimated 5% of its revenues to fraud each year, according to the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, and losses are not recovered in more than half of these occurrences.

Armanino can help your organization take simple, cost-effective steps to prevent fraud.  If you suspect fraud has already occurred, we can determine if and how it happened, and the size and scope of your losses. Our seasoned Fraud Services team has more than 20 years of experience, and we have a proven track record of delivering tangible value for a wide range of clients, from small nonprofits to large multinational corporations. 

Fraud Assessment and Prevention
Through a partnership with technology provider Red Flag Reporting, Armanino now provides the best fraud prevention tool at a low-cost for our clients.  We can provide you with a turnkey, 24/7 reporting hotline that is available by phone or on the web for anonymous tips by your employees. Our fraud assessment specialists can help your organization determine its greatest risks and recommend specific improvements to prevent losses. We use a multidisciplinary approach to address all crucial risk factors, including personnel, business processes and technology. We also provide in-depth assessments and testing of fraud risk controls. Timing can be critical, and we implement assessments quickly so that you get immediate results.

Fraud Investigation
If you suspect fraud in your organization, our team can be onsite to investigate right away. We’ll determine whether and how a loss has occurred and its potential magnitude. Attorneys and law enforcement officials rely on our work, and many of our investigations have led to criminal indictments or lawsuits against the perpetrators.

Litigation Support 
Our Litigation Support Services team performs investigations into fraud losses, working for the party with the loss or as the court-appointed neutral expert. In dispute resolutions, we work to negotiate agreements before matters are submitted for trial. We work with the leading law firms in the Bay Area and have been retained in more than 600 litigated matters. We provide expert witness testimony in courts throughout the region.
