Did You Hire A Fraud?

If you have employees, you need to read this book!

This book will serve as your complete guide to making sure you don’t “Hire a Fraud”. What you don’t know about fraud CAN and WILL cause you to suffer severe financial losses, drive you to bankruptcy, or even put you out of business. When you understand what fraud is and how fraudsters work, you can implement safeguards to protect your business.

Unlike any other crime, fraud is personal! The violation leaves you feeling hurt, betrayed, ashamed, and even disappointed. That’s because it is most likely committed by a trusted person – like a bookkeeper, assistant, or even a business partner.

In this book you will discover:

  • The face of fraud – you will learn the stats, signs, and schemes
  • True stories – you will see how fraud has impacted a small business, a non-profit entity, a church, and even a big business
  • The solutions – you will learn strategies you can put into place immediately to protect your business from insider theft

Bernadette L.
