Fraud investigations are complex and sensitive and require the utmost care and discretion. The first step is to gather all relevant information and evidence, which can be obtained through financial records, eyewitness accounts, emails, telephone communications and surveillance.
When all the evidence has been gathered, it must be reviewed carefully to identify any patterns, modus operandi, lines of enquiry to pursue and any red flags.
Investigators will pursue all available lines of enquiry until they have been exhausted and as much evidence as possible has been gathered and recorded.
After that, investigators will interview relevant parties to obtain more information. Finally, a report and a brief of evidence will be prepared that documents the investigation findings. The report will contain the following:
- Victim affidavit / Statement outlining the events that unfolded in as much detail as possible. This will form the basis of the investigation and complaint.
- Witness statements and interviews
- Cyber forensics findings
- Open-Source Intelligence (OSINT) findings
- Cryptocurrency Tracing analysis reports (if applicable) and know your customer records (KYC) if obtained.
- Any financial and banking records/statements
- Human Source information, if applicable
- Surveillance footage and surveillance logs, if applicable
This report can be used to file criminal charges or pursue civil action. Fraud investigations are time-consuming and complex, but they are essential to protect consumers and businesses from unscrupulous individuals.
