Fraud

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fraud is the act of making false representations of material facts whether by words or conduct, by concealing information, or by making misleading statements in order to obtain some benefits or payments that would otherwise not exist.Fraud includes (but not limited to) any questionable accounting practices or irregularities in the Company’s reported financial statements and non-compliance with the Company’s internal financial controls and procedures. These acts may be committed either for the reporting individual’s own benefit, or for the benefit of some other party.

 

Abuse

 

 

Abuse consists of practices that cause unnecessary costs to the Company. Abuse can be similar to fraud, except that it is not necessary to prove that abuse was performed knowingly, wilfully and intentionally.

 

Waste

 

 

Waste is spending money or using resources on goods or resources in excess of actual need. Waste does not necessarily produce a benefit for the reporting individual, but is an act of poor management of resources.
