International Fraud Awareness Week kicks off Nov. 15, 2015 worldwide
[Alexandria, Virginia]– Fraud costs organizations worldwide an estimated 5 percent of their annual revenues, according to a study conducted by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE). If applied to the 2014 estimated Gross World Product, this translates to a potential projected global fraud loss of approximately $3.9 trillion.
The seriousness of the global fraud problem is why Integrity Management Services (IntegrityM) announced that it will be participating in International Fraud Awareness Week, Nov. 15-21, 2015, as an official supporter to promote anti-fraud awareness and education. The movement, known commonly as Fraud Week, champions the need to proactively fight fraud and help safeguard business and investments from the growing fraud problem.
IntegrityM joins hundreds of organizations who have partnered with the ACFE, the world’s largest anti-fraud organization and premier provider of anti-fraud training and education, for the yearly Fraud Week campaign.
ACFE President and CEO James D. Ratley, CFE, said that the support of organizations around the world helps make Fraud Week an effective tool in raising anti-fraud awareness.
IntegrityM has been supporting anti-fraud measures since its inception, utilizing outreach and education, data analysis, investigation, and audits to detect and prevent fraud in healthcare.
