Take the 5 minute test to discover what kind of fraud detective you are. From investigating hundreds of frauds and teaching thousands of people to spot and stop fraud over the past decades, we have realized is that absolutely anybody can spot fraud.
Our trials over many years supports our theory that “everybody can be a fraud detective” with four different types of fraud detective traits: Intuitive (typically “gut feel”), Transactional (focussed on details), Technocratic (highly systematic) or Holistic (“big picture”). Typically, people have one strong trait, a secondary trait and other “type traces”.
This test is for everyone! You don’t need to be a fraud specialist.
So, go on, take the fraud detective challenge to find out what sort of fraud detective YOU are and learn more about early fraud detection and the power of teamwork.

Transactional fraud detectives tend to focus first and foremost on details as well as how these details relate to each other. In other words, the Transactional Fraud Detective sees “stories” of fraud through seemingly insignificant happenings.
They tend to enjoy working most with technocratic fraud detectives.
Intuitive fraud detectives tend to be internally driven and relying primarily on gut feel. You rapidly skim large volumes of information leading to judgement calls and quick conclusions.
They are highly driven but can tend to prefer working alone (…which is not always healthy!)
Technocratic fraud detectives typically like to identify patterns creating relationships by “joining the dots” in data which often can be visualized by programs and algorithms.
They are often highly systematic and rely on machine support.
Holistic fraud detectives can often recognize and balance the input from detailed analysis and combine this with gut feel. They can often quickly see the big picture of the likely frauds taking place but may skip over details. “Holistics” tend to enjoy taking charge to get the best out of the other 3 types of fraud detectives.
