Fraud investigation involves several different private investigation services.

Martin Investigative Services’ private investigators help you avoid fraudulent financial transactions, bankruptcies, suspicious activities, and embezzlement.

Preventing fraud.

The most common forms of employment fraud are theft, embezzlement, and forgery.

Background checks for new & existing employees.

New businesses are particularly vulnerable to this type as they trust their new hires. Before hiring, be careful and get pre-employment background checks as employment fraud can show many faces.

It’s essential to get vigorous and perform thorough employee background checks on existing employees.

Watch for red flags.

Most employers don’t know they’ve been deceived until it’s too late, but there are red flags you can watch for. Lifestyle changes are one.

Things to consider: falsifying records, petty theft, accounting misconduct, family partnerships which are not being audited.

Surprisingly, errant executives account for the most significant financial losses.

Don’t be afraid or embarrassed. Fraud investigations can begin at any stage, but it is crucial to call us as soon as possible.

It is always free to get a consultation at Martin Investigative Services.

Case Study: Fraud Investigation

Newport Beach Corporate Fraud

A prominent Newport Beach attorney representing a large beer manufacturer contacted us. We met with the attorney and the company executives at their corporate headquarters.

The company had a problem: large amounts of inventory were missing. They had a certain amount of product on hand, but their internal accounting told them they should have more money.


Our private investigators provided employee surveillance and in-depth interviews and interrogations of employees later.

We quickly discovered several employees were smuggling products out of the factory. The results from this investigation were handed to the District Attorney. As a result of our investigation, 17 people were arrested, prosecuted, and served jail time.
