The Thief in Your CompanyAs the business world changes, an ever-increasing number of workers are helping themselves to sophisticated, covert variations of the old "five-finger discount." The worst part? The Thief in Your Company is probably the person you trust the most.
American businesses, large and small, lose an average of 5% of their annual gross revenues to insider fraud.
Forensic accountant Tiffany Couch is a sleuth with an adding machine. She has seen theft in many forms, but what sticks with her the most is not the fraud schemes or the dollar losses. It's the victims who all experience the same emotional devastation that these crimes leave in their wake.
And her warning: It can happen to you.
The Thief in Your Company will educate you and entertain you, pull at your heart strings, and convince you to put her time-tested security blueprint into practice. All types and sizes of organizations will learn how to:
- Be familiar with and protect against the most common fraud schemes
- Recognize the typical fraudsters
- Leave the door open for whistleblowers to report suspicious activity
- Take specific actionable steps if fraudulent activity is discovered
- Understand the emotional impacts of financial crimes

"Your book reminded me of the heartbreak the victim suffers due to the breach of trust. During the first few years that I conducted investigations, I made it a point to verbally hug the victims. I ensured that the victims felt safe and secure during the investigation and understood that it was normal to feel betrayed, hurt and angry. However, of late, I see that I conducted investigations, presented my findings, got confessions, turned the cases over to HR/law enforcement, and ran to the next case. I forgot the victims. Thank you for reminding me to slow down and give the victims a hug, even if it is just over the phone." Sharon Tibbits, CFE
