Here at Foresight Clinical Services, we’ve been providing expert witnesses for commercial solicitors, family solicitors, local authorities, barristers and private clients for many years now. Not only do we supply expert witnesses to compile reports for use in court in cases of fraud, we can also provide investigation services through our sister company, and retired police investigators to assist with fraud investigations.
Having assisted with cases involving fraud at a variety of levels, we thought we’d take the opportunity to voice our support for International Fraud Awareness Week 2017.
Officially taking place from November 12-18, the annual drive was launched as a means by which to generate greater awareness among those who may typically ignore or overlook the severity of fraud. Those with a vested interest in fraud prevention are encouraged to work closely with their peers, coworkers, executives and stakeholders to communicate the importance of a unified stance against fraud at every level.
Anyone looking to play their part in the global anti-fraud drive is invited to sign up today at FraudWeek.com, which is 100% free of charge and easy to do. After which, a wide variety of helpful resources can likewise be accessed free of charge via the Fraud Week website.
Along with the usual contingency of information materials, new additions for the 2017 campaign include infographics, animated videos examining the psychology of the fraudster and an interactive quiz to test your current knowledge.
The organisers of Fraud Week would like to see these materials proactively distributed at both an organisational and community level, in order to nurture greater awareness among the public in general. As most types of fraud are preventable with proactive protective measures, the importance of fraud awareness cannot be overstated.
Demonstrating your support for International Fraud Awareness Week will help bolster your authority and positions as a responsible and trustworthy organisation – both internally and on a public level. Along with positioning yourself as an advocate of fraud-prevention and awareness, there are plenty of things you can do to nurture proactivity in those around you.
