The sad truth about electronic fraud

No employer wants to suspect staff of theft or fraud. Its easier to focus on shoplifters than your own employees, especially if youre a small business. But the reality cant be ignored. The Australian Retailers Association estimates that 50-60% of all shrinkage (stock loss) is due to employee theft.

The battle against physical theft has been fought with increasing success.
However, now theres a new battlefront. New Point of sale technologies at the shop counter (eftpos, credit cards etc.) brings increased opportunities for electronic fraud, ranging from discount abuse to manipulation of commissions. Studies show its often the longest serving employees who are more likely to offend. They know the system, they know how to manipulate it, and they believe they won’t get caught!

Small and large retailers are losing millions per annum to employee theft. In results published from the 2001 US National Retail Security Survey, internal theft now costs U.S. retailers $14.9 billion annually.

Youve fought the battle against physical theft, now its time to confront the invisible enemy electronic fraud.
