SPEUR Forensic Services is based in the Western Cape and was established to assist businesses and organisations with a multi-disciplinary approach to the prevention, detection, and investigation of financial crime and associated risks by making use of a network of forensic experts.
To date, the continuous increase in instances of fraud have taken it’s toll over a wide range of business entities throughout South Africa. Large organisations are able to respond quicker to this threat than smaller businesses by implementing fraud prevention strategies and various pro-active measures, such as fraud hotlines, fraud awareness campaigns, risk assessments, pre-employment vetting, job rotation, etc .
The smaller businesses however, having to manage with less staff to perform more tasks, is exposed to financial crimes such as fraud in a greater sense and although they usually have smaller losses, it could result in going out of business.
As business owners identify incidents of financial crime or when suspicions arise relating to irregular activities, they are faced with difficult decisions as to their approach to dealing with these incidents.
It is therefore our aim to assist our clients in making informed decisions by:
• Gathering adequate evidence to consider and support possible, disciplinary, civil or criminal action against perpetrators;
• Identifying the root cause of an incident in order to prevent further loss;
• Quantifying the loss to consider appropriate steps such as embarking on a recovery process; and
• Recommending measures to prevent incidents from re-occurring in future.
