  • Asset misappropriation, which involves the theft or misuse of an organisation’s assets. 
  • Fraudulent statements usually in the form of falsification of financial statements in order to obtain improper benefit. 
  • Corruption such as the use of bribes or acceptance of kickbacks, improper use of confidential information, conflicts of interest and collusive tendering.
