Leeds Fraud Investigations

The head accountant for a large computer firm came to Private Detective Leeds with a concern about an employee's expense account. The employee in question worked evaluating corporate computers, mainframes, and networks at their request and then selling them hardware and software upgrades. There were only two such salespeople on their staff both equal in all ways except their expense reports. One's expenses always came in about 30% higher than the other. The equipment they sold was expensive, and it was part of their job to wine and dine clients and occasionally take them out on the town. The company strictly forbade using the company credit card for personal expenses not related directly to winning more business. It also seemed the sales agent in question filed expense reports with an excessive amount of mileage on his car for which the company reimbursed him. The head accountant suspected fraud and hired our private detectives in Leeds to see if they could uncover it. Our client gave us the salesman's schedule and an itinerary of the companies he would be visiting soon. He also gave us copies of past expense reports to look for telling patterns. Our goal was to find out whether the man was committing fraud or not.

Our private investigator went through the expense reports and took note of the places the salesperson claimed to have taken clients and when he took them. We also put a GPS on the salesman's car to track and record the distance and the time that he travelled. There were several times on his expense sheet where he claimed to have taken clients to dinner. That he did this was not unusual. However, typically a salesperson would take the client to lunch much more often than dinner because of respect for working hours. However our private detective noticed the employee in question had almost equal amounts of dinners and lunches. When contrasted with the other salesperson, he had three times as many dinner meetings. From this, the private detectives decided to conduct surveillance of the man during the evening hours. It did not take long to see the man with his family and friends including children entering an expensive restaurant. The next day, our private investigator checked online and saw that salesman had bought the dinner on the company credit card. At the end of the week, when he filed his expense report, he described the expense as taking the owner of an advertising agency and the agency's upper management out to dinner. Meanwhile, our forensic investigator compared the amount of mileage on his report to the mileage recorded by the GPS during working hours. He had inflated the mileage he said he drove by 28% of the amount.

With the evidence our private detectives gathered, the company quietly dismissed the salesman. The head of accounting asked that we make sure the other salesperson had not also been committing fraud. After a brief investigation, we were happy to tell the company that the other salesperson was honest on her expense report. The company asked our private detectives to do a background check on the salesperson they had hired to replace the one they fired. We have continued a business relationship with the computer company since.
