Recently Crown Associates International have been requested by clients to investigate issues of false accounting, fraudulent expenses claims by members of staff. Also fraudulent or false invoicing, where invoices are paid to a bogus company set up by an employee or where new bank details are received from criminals purporting to be from an approved legitimate supplier. These particular offences have as in several of our recent cases, the potential to cost the client tens, or even hundreds of thousands of pounds.

The Fraud Act was introduced in 2006 which consists of three main sections:
"Fraud by false representation"
is defined by Section 2 of the Act as a case where a person makes "any representation as to fact or law ... express or implied" which they know to be untrue or misleading.
"Fraud by failing to disclose information"
is defined by Section 3 of the Act as a case where a person fails to disclose any information to a third party when they are under a legal duty to disclose such information.
"Fraud by abuse of position"
is defined by Section 4 of the Act as a case where a person occupies a position where they are expected to safeguard the financial interests of another person, and abuses that position; this includes cases where the abuse consisted of an omission rather than an overt act.
In all three above sections of fraud, it requires that for an offence to have occurred, the person must have acted dishonestly, and that they had to have acted with the intent of making a gain for themselves or anyone else, or inflicting a loss (or a risk of loss) on another.
Other types of fraud involve:
Fraudulent or exaggerated insurance claims, personal injury, motor vehicle or household contents etc, mortgage and cheque fraud.
