Not another leaked memo?

Numerous accountancy firms have been warning organisations to be on the look out for a rise in internal fraud, excessive expense claims etc as the recession builds.
If there is a feeling within any organisation that existing controls relating to expenses are inadequate, there will be some who will take advantage of the situation.Watch out for unusual claims e.g. swimming pool maintenance, moat cleaning etc- these may point to a wider abuse of the system and the need for greater controls.
