Fraud Tip: Change Perspectives

DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT...If there's a police car parked at the same corner when you drive to work every day, you slow down as you approach the corner, then speed up when you pass by. That's why cops move their cars around. So why do we 'park our cars to catch speeders' in the same spot every year? That is, why do we perform the same procedures every year? Want to protect yourself? You don't have to do more, just do different procedures. Mix it up to keep client off balance. It's not an effective control if the client knows how to avoid detection because you do the same thing every year.
