”Audits do not always catch fraud”

When all the standard computer and accounting checklists have been completed, the fraud prevention plans are still incomplete. The Services of the B4G™ specialists round out a complete fraud prevention and deterrence strategy.

Fraud Prevention, Deterrence, and Investigation Support

Our services address situations faced by organizations across the fraud lifecycle:

  • They have a (potential or existing) fraud problem that could be very material to success and/or existence.
  • They lack resources to deal with the fraud problem before, during, and/or after its occurrence.
Behavioral Forensics Group

B4G™ presents an array of services designed to respond to both factors:

  • Psychology lies at the root of all white collar crime. Conventional anti-fraud tools and techniques often miss this fact.
  • We are your resources to guide your efforts surrounding white collar crime (fraud).
  • We have the experience and insight to develop solutions across the fraud lifecycle from all sides of the Fraud Triangle (psychology) and the Dark Triad Personality (the psychiatry behind predatory leadership).
