Resolving Fraud Allegations in Your Nonprofit
Nothing will have a greater impact on your nonprofit than fraud. Fraud is a silent and devastating crime with the potential to destroy your nonprofit’s success, growth, and reputation.
If you suspect that your nonprofit has been victimized by fraud, then a fraud investigation will be needed to resolve those suspicions. Because of the hidden and complex nature of fraud schemes, a fraud investigation requires an investigator with specialized knowledge and skills in order to provide a competent and objective fraud investigation.
Chuck Cochran, the owner of C.R. Cochran & Associates, is a Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE) with the skills, knowledge, and experience to help you resolve any allegations or suspicions of fraudulent activities in your nonprofit.
We also offer financial asset investigations to support your fraud investigation and help in recovery of assets, and due diligence investigations to help avoid fraud and protect your organization’s public image.
C.R. Cochran & Associates investigates fraud schemes affecting nonprofit organizations involving asset misappropriation and bribery and corruption.
We will provide you with a thorough and objective investigation to determine if there was an actual fraud, or if there is an alternative explanation for the concerns. An objective approach to a fraud investigation is critical since an unfounded accusation of fraud will have serious and irreversible consequences for your nonprofit.
If fraud is detected in your nonprofit, we will focus on determining who is involved in the fraud and how it was committed. This will enable you to stop the current fraud scheme and limit the damage to your organization. We will also work with you to determine the losses suffered by your nonprofit during the fraud.
Financial Asset Investigations
Admittedly, recovering money, inventory, and other assets stolen by a fraudster is difficult and frustrating, but it isn’t impossible.
C.R. Cochran & Associates can provide your nonprofit with a financial asset investigation that goes beyond the basic asset search offered by most private investigators. We utilize specialized investigative and research techniques to locate cash, property, investments, and other assets held by the individuals, organizations, and businesses involved in the fraud.
Most important, your organization’s financial asset investigation will be conducted in accordance with the provisions of the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act to ensure that the results of the financial asset investigation are admissible in a court of law.
Due Diligence Investigations
One of the best ways to prevent fraud is to avoid legal and financial entanglements with organizations or individuals with a questionable history or reputation. To help avoid those troublesome entanglements, C.R. Cochran & Associates can provide your nonprofit with due diligence investigations on businesses, nonprofits, and individuals.
Your due diligence investigation will be designed to meet your specific needs and requirements. We will conduct a thorough examination of all available resources such as public records, commercial databases, court documents, government publications, and regulatory filings. When requested, we will conduct interviews, onsite inspections, and surveillance.
All the collected information will be analyzed and presented to your organization to allow management to make an informed decision before entering into an agreement that could damage your nonprofit.
