Sessions help charities beat fraud
Spell it out: Fraud is a serious
threat to charities with potentially
The Charities Commission and
accounting firm BDO are pres-
enting free fraud detection and
prevention workshops for
Whangarei charities on Thurs-
This follows the release of a
survey in March revealing that
reported fraud was at 12 per
cent -- though the real figure is
likely to be much higher with 57
per cent of respondents not
reporting fraud to police.

to these workshops indicates a

implemented a fraud control

and indicates that fraud, decep-
tion and lack of transparency
may be costing charities nation-
wide a lot more money than is
being reported, Mr Bewley
The survey also highlighted
that online fraud is now the
most devastating threat to
charities with significant
increases in amounts being
stolen via electronic funds
transfer and internet banking.
The workshops run from 9am
to noon and 1pm to 4pm at Elim
Christian Centre, 33 Porowini
Ave. They will address:
