Embezzlement and Check Fraud

Embezzlement has recently made "headline news" here in the Southland, once again crippling organizations and victimizing employees, vendors, and families. Embezzlement has many red flags and warning signs, and is almost always preventable with appropriate policies, procedures, and protocols in place. Embezzlement is completely intertwined with check fraud, as many embezzlement schemes involve checks, especially in small and medium-sized organizations, which tend to have fewer controls in place. Attend this session to identify the red flags of embezzlement and check fraud schemes and develop specific, straightforward strategies that work to prevent these crimes from hitting your organization.

Greg Litster
Greg Litster is president and founder of SAFEChecks, a company
specializing in check fraud prevention, and is a pioneer in fraud
prevention. He is Editor of the Abagnale Fraud Bulletin, and has given
hundreds of fraud prevention seminars and presentations to numerous
professional organizations and financial institutions throughout the
United States. He has served as an expert witness on embezzlement and
check fraud cases nationally and internationally.
