Fraud hotline most effective tool

Confidential reporting hotlines can uncover fraud in half the time as other safeguards, according to an article in the Bennington Banner. Certified fraud examiner Christopher Rosetti said confidential reporting was proven in the business world to be the most effective tool at combating fraud, abuse, and waste. Rosetti said contrary to creating distrust, a confidential reporting system reinforced unity because most people are honest and ethical -- and willing to step forward, at least anonymously.
Citing a biennial survey by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (Rosetti sits as chair on that association's foundation), the fraud expert said the average organization lost about $6 a day per employee to fraudulent behavior.
