Many businesses do not realize they are about to become victims of contractor fraud until it is too late. Experienced con artists can outwit even the best vendor due diligence efforts. Certified Fraud Examiners protect businesses from contractor fraud and are a valuable resource for businesses in every industry. Astinel Security & Forensics helps businesses and attorneys vet contractors and prevent fraud.
Seasoned business professionals often believe that they are too smart to be fooled by contractor fraud. They might also believe that their reputation protects them because no one would dare try to harm them. These beliefs lead to the downfall of great businesses. The reality is that aptitude and professional prowess will not protect businesses from desperation or contempt. Many contractors who try to con businesses have fallen on hard times. They may be facing debt, labor complaints, legal bills, and fines, all of which are difficult to catch while performing vendor due diligence. This is why professional security and forensics specialists are the ultimate tool to protect businesses.
Contractor fraud appears in many ways. Failure to perform, breach of contract, or bad faith conduct are different from what most people expect fraud to look like but are all often used contractor fraud practices. When businesses are hit by contractor fraud, even if they want to recover their losses, shame prevents them from seeking civil remedies or criminal action.
Contractor fraud can also be highly sophisticated. Fake websites created with customer reviews can trick even very seasoned businesses. These contractors even provide photographs and documents to appear fake their legitimacy. Avoiding contractor and servicer fraud is trickier than it sounds. Green on the part of the business can make contractor fraud even harder to catch. The reality is, when something seems too good to be true, it usually is.
This is where Astinel Security & Forensics comes in. Astinel has the skill and experience to aptly notice red flags. As unbiased examiners, they inspect customer reviews, conduct research online, and pose crafty questions. “Too often, businesses who are victims of fraud are too embarrassed to ask for outside help,” says Zane Kinney, a Certified Fraud Examiner and Principal Consultant for Astinel Security. “They do not understand how fraud examiners can help or believe that they do not need assistance. After the fraud is revealed, victims beat themselves up. They are mortified beyond consolation. At Astinel Security, we work hard to prevent businesses from ever getting to this point.”
