Bristol Fraud Investigations

An accountant called the Private Investigator Bristol to set up a consultation for her and her employer. Workers were redesigning part of the office building into state-of-the art conference rooms. Some of the bills from this project didn't add up for her. The bills came from a couple of different contractors. Senior managers typically signed off on all work and materials from outside sources. There was an internal audit that compared the work completed to the bills received. The projects, signed off by one particular senior manager, did not always match what the workers had completed at the office building. However, because of the extent of the work, the audits were not always clear or decisive. Sometimes, it was not easy to tell which receipt was for what job. There was enough doubt in the accountant's mind that she felt justified in suggesting to the CEO that they hire a private investigator. If someone was behaving dishonestly in the chaos of all the construction, they could be indirectly stealing a fortune from the company. A friend of the CEO recommended our private detectives in Bristol to help them discover if the company had a problem. Our private investigator went over the receipts and the bills to gain an understanding of accountant's suspicions.

One of our investigators concentrated on interviewing some of the contractors whose bills the accountant questioned. Another began looking into the senior manager who had signed off on the suspected invoices and bills. When the investigator went to the man's house, he saw a van outside emblazoned with the name of one of contractors who was hired to build the office building conference rooms. There was noise of work coming from the house. Calling the interviewing investigator, he suggested that he go to that contractor first. Meanwhile, he went to the door and found out by casually talking to a worker as a neighbour might that they were building the senior manager a state-of-the-art home theatre. At the contractor's office, the private detective began to question the accounts department about that company's connection with the senior manager. After our investigator let the contractor know his company was under suspicion and their practices would be explored for irregularities, they admitted that they bid on the project through the senior manager. In the bidding process, they agreed to bill all the work and material for the home theatre to the company. They also knowingly agreed to falsify the invoices and billing notes. If they agreed, the senior manager guaranteed they would win the profitable job. This verified the accountant's suspicions. Fortunately, the compulsively organised contractor had coded the invoices in a way that enabled him to distinguish the work they did at the office building from the work they did at the senior manager's house. Our private detective brought the code to the company accountant who then separated the legitimate jobs from senior managers.

Based on the information our private investigators gathered, the CEO contacted the police and had the senior manager arrested. They charged him with embezzlement. They also fired and sued the contracting company and had their conference rooms completed by another company. Since then, the company has kept the Private Investigator Bristol telephone number on their speed dial for when they need something looked into or when they needed a background check completed. He estimated that the first job saved the company a great deal of money.
