The most common behavioral red flag exhibited by occupational fraud perpetrators is living beyond their means. This may be tough to spot if you don’t work closely with a fraud suspect. But as the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners has found, more obvious non-fraud offenses may correlate with criminal actions. For example, many perpetrators had been excessively absent from, or late to work, or had come into conflict with colleagues. Some had performance issues that resulted in poor reviews or they were denied raises and promotions. When these signs are present, consider looking more closely at employees and their lifestyles.
