Fraud is no joke in the brutally competitive retail industry. With margins stretched razor-thin by aggressive pricing wars, retailers need to crack down on cash loss due to fraud, especially when it is being committed by their own employees.
In addition to having intimate knowledge of retailers’ security procedures (and by extension, how to circumvent them), employees have access to risky register functions and unprotected merchandise in back rooms, in the warehouses, and on trucks.
This insider knowledge makes it very difficult to detect internal fraud, even with CCTV and other security measures.
In this ebook, we will examine:
- Five types of internal retail fraud
- The data behaviors that reveal them
- How to identify and stop them with advanced analytics.
