Employee embezzlement is one of the most common fraud schemes plaguing small businesses who have turned their financial management over to a trusted employee without sufficient oversight. A small business owner’s primary concern is providing products or services, not bookkeeping. Usually, the owner turns over financial management to one individual; resulting in a perfect storm of opportunity for fraud.
