Fraud

Fraud

Losses from fraud, corporate espionage, identity theft and other financial crimes are estimated to be in excess of $100 billion per year, and are rising for U.S. businesses and investors.

Schemes to defraud, embezzle and illegally divert funds have been developed and perfected over many years and, with the addition of the Internet, have become a nightmare. Fraud schemes typically fall into several general categories:

  • Corruption involving governmental authorities, such as bribery, kickbacks, illegal gratuities, bid rigging, conflicts of interest and breach of fiduciary duty
  • Asset misappropriations (embezzlement of cash or inventory)
  • Unlawful disclosure of business, trade and research secrets
  • Fraudulent statements (financial and non-financial) including fictitious revenue statements, concealed expenditures, false asset valuations or failure to disclose material facts
  • Ponzi schemes, reinvented time and again, most recently with the aid of the Internet and offshore financial centers, have become the biggest single threat confronting global investors

These activities are seldom detected or solved by traditional internal or independent audits. Even if detected, auditors rarely have the investigative experience to unravel the fraud – particularly the ability to pursue leads outside of the victim’s company. That is simply not what auditors do, but it is what we do with efficiency and success.

Due Diligence

Due Diligence

In today’s ever-changing business world, corporations continuously find themselves involved in complex transactions, including mergers/divestitures, joint ventures, lending arrangements, corporate financial restructurings and hiring of key executives. These situations require the disclosure and verification of information by one or more parties. To the extent that such disclosures are false, misleading, inadequate or incomplete, the transaction could suffer, which could lead to embarrassment, financial hardship, criminal sanctions or loss of license.

Corporate intelligence is necessary for sound business decisions and to comply with requirements imposed by government regulators. Corporate decision makers require timely and comprehensive investigations to verify the “facts” given to them by individuals, companies and lending sources.

In complex transactions, the due diligence process can involve a team of lawyers and accountants to conduct financial and transactional reviews, and USSC, Inc. investigators to confirm the integrity, reputation and professional background of individuals, companies and purported facts.

Competitive Intelligence

Competitive Intelligence

In the Information Age, knowledge is power. And reliable, accurate, timely information is an invaluable asset and a marketable commodity.

A company with “new information” has an advantage over its competition. That’s why competitors are increasingly trying to level the playing field by obtaining this vital data by any means. Care must be taken to obtain useful information by legal means and not to engage in illegal or unethical techniques that can cause damage a company’s reputation or subject it to criminal or civil penalties.

Useful intelligence on competitors can be obtained from the adept exploitation of open source material held by commercial and government sources. Knowledgeable sources can be located and interviewed, and patterns of information can be developed for further analysis. Collecting data in this manner is just part of the craft of competitive intelligence. Data must undergo analysis and testing to evolve into a product from which useful decisions can be made.

USSC, Inc. specializes in using investigative collection and analytical skills to create intelligence from which sound business decisions can be made. This expertise becomes critical for clients who are subject to takeover attempts. In these situations, USSC, Inc. can assist with expert investigations designed to determine the backgrounds, intentions and capabilities of those engaged in the transaction as part of an overall defensive strategy.
