A great article from our US colleagues - on the global issue of fraud in the construction industry and providing examples of what can go wrong. It's widely know that the Construction Industry is vulnerable to fraud and this is often attributed to the slower take up of information technology in this sector. 

The real cost of fraud is hard to gauge as it is often copped on the chin and not reported by those impacted. However we encourage Companies to take a more open approach and prosecute perpetrators more often, to send the message that the construction industry will not tolerate fraud.
