In business, we often first deal with fraudulent activities after something has already happened. The barn door is open, the horse is gone and the question is: What do we do now?
The first questions to be answered are:
- How did the fraudulent activity come to light? (or how did we learn of the fraudulent activity?)
- Are there really fraudulent actions or only claims or assertions?
- What are the effects of these actions?
- Is the existence of the company endangered?
- Who must be informed?
