Fraud in the News
Fraud exists in our world today because greed dominates our society. The desire for more and more money, material “things” and power drive otherwise good people to commit fraud. A lack of deterrents to fraud and a criminal justice system that focuses on violent crimes makes fraud a low risk venture for criminals and those with opportunity. Law Enforcement often times view fraud as a “victimless” crime and therefore do not devote the proper resources to investigate and prosecute fraud.
