Asset and Hidden Finances InvestigationsWhat Is Fraud?
Fraud is defined as a deception deliberately practiced to secure unfair or unlawful gain. It has also been defined as the intentional misrepresentation of truth for the purpose of obtaining something of value by inducing another to rely upon false information.


Regardless of definition, the key elements of fraud are these: intent, the misrepresentation or untruth, reliance on misrepresentation or untruth, and something of value obtained as a result.


To the average person, the definition of fraud is confusing by itself. Not only is fraud a complex and confusing crime, but also very difficult to prove. IBRC Investigators have years of law enforcement experience dealing in fraud investigations. We have investigated and submitted for prosecutions fraud cases involving losses that vary from several thousand dollars to several million dollars.
