In a June 14 report on the habits of fraudsters, KPMG found that most are able to ply their trade by exploiting weak internal controls. And most fraudsters are male, are 36 to 45 years old, are senior managers, have worked at their company for more than ten years, and defraud their own employer. Also, the impetus for fraud often results from an influencing factor, such as financial concerns, job dissatisfaction, or aggressive business quotas and targets. It's also significant that companies' fraud-detection efforts have waned in recent years.
