ID Scanner Solutions for Staff Fraud

Protect your business from fake & illegitimate Identity usage.

Is Identity Fraud Affecting Your Business?

Surprisingly, much retail fraud is perpetrated by employees who have inappropriate access to unsecured customer information. The employees use this information to steal merchandise, manipulate point of sale and accounting systems, and put the stolen merchandise on the accounts of real customers.

Alternatively, some retailers try to do the right thing and don’t capture unsecured copies of customer’s Personal Information. This again allows staff to freely commit fraud penalty-free by falsifying or creating fictitious customers, knowing it’s almost impossible for the fraud to be tracked back to them.

A recent report by CBS indicates that companies typically lose about 5% of their revenue due to internal employee theft. This amount climbs even higher during economically challenging times. As Timothy Dimoff, founder and president of SACS Consulting & Investigative Services, says:

Some employees may steal more to survive, but often the larger reason is that they steal because they feel a sense of entitlement to make up for a lack of compensation they believe they should be receiving.

Unfortunately, it’s not difficult to find examples of this. A manager at a major Australian retailer was able to steal more than $100,000 worth of goods from the company and then sell them on eBay.

The manager falsified records to create an intricate criminal scheme that took many months to discover, leaving the retailer to have to sort through the wreckage created by the employee. When there isn’t an adequate system available to securely store customer information, this problem appears again and again.

The Solution: Identity Scanners

Retailers face serious consequences if they break these guidelines, so why do so many companies continue to do it?

The cost of retail fraud is so high that they feel they don’t have any options.

What’s needed is a way to accurately and securely collect this personal information while ensuring that it complies with legislative requirements.

Simple to Use

Scantek has been designed and built for simplicity and user-friendliness. There is no complicated interface and the ID scanning process is simple and straightforward; anyone can learn to use the system in a few minutes.

A business’ size doesn’t seem to increase the likelihood of staff committing fraud against their employer. Instead, it’s the ability and opportunity for staff due to the systems and processes in place.

According to the PWC Global Economic Crime Survey 2016, seven out of 10 organisations believe the biggest driver of internal economic crime is opportunity.

What business owners can do is limit opportunities for staff to commit fraud and create a work environment that actively discourages fraud.

By implementing a fraud-detection monitoring solution such as Scantek, a business can create a method of detection for staff, which is a considerable deterrent for fraud.

Those who do log in are recorded, providing employee accountability. This level of protection allows you to fight back against internal employee theft and to keep information protected in accordance with the Privacy Act.
