Resolving Fraud Allegations in Your Business


Nothing will have a greater impact on your business than fraud. Fraud is a silent and devastating crime with the potential to destroy your company’s profitability, growth, and reputation.


If you suspect that your business 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 business.


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 business reputation.


Fraud Investigations

C.R. Cochran & Associates investigates fraud schemes involving asset misappropriation, bribery and corruption, financial statement fraud, and corporate espionage.


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 business.


If fraud is detected in your company, 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 company. We will also work with you to determine the losses suffered by your business 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 business 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 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 company 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 business allow management to make an informed decision before entering into an agreement that could damage your business.
