Internal embezzlements, where two or three people could be the embezzler, causes management to panic. This results in the wrong people being assigned to conduct the investigation. Internal Audit, Human Resources, and the Security Department get into a conflict on who should handle the investigation. Internal Audit believes they should do it because they are the boards investigating arm. Human Resources believe they should handle it as they are involved directly with the staff. The Security Department knows they should handle since they conduct the financial institution’s investigations. Who should handle it? The person trained on how to conduct an internal fraud investigation! If no one is trained, management needs to go outside of the institution to retain a seasoned Certified Fraud Examiner.
