Fraud experts have long suggested that the presence of three conditions (pressure, rationalization and opportunity) greatly increases the likelihood that an employee will commit fraud. This is known as the “fraud triangle.” Over the years, the original triangle framework has been expanded to add capability (generally fraud-prone personality characteristics) to define a “fraud diamond.” Other models have modified the triangle and diamond, but they all serve the same purpose: to help business owners identify risk and eliminate opportunities to commit fraud.
