Women and Fraud: Special Considerations for Investigating the Pink Collar Criminal

Complete the form below to watch the webinar


Picture a typical fraudster and you’re likely to picture a male manager in his mid-40s with a nice car and a friendly smile. After all, the typical fraudster does fit this profile, according to a 2016 KPMG study. However, there’s another fraudster whose profile is becoming more and more common (up by 40% over the last 10 years). These “pink collar criminals” are female long-term employees in trusted financial and administrative positions and their numbers are rising year by year.

In order to tackle this rising threat, today’s investigators must consider the different motives and strategies of these emerging criminals and the new challenges they bring.

Join Kelly Paxton, Founder of Financial Caseworks LLC and PinkCollarCrime.com as well as a CFE and fraud educator, as she outlines the special considerations for investigating pink collar criminals.

The webinar will cover:

  • How to spot the female fraudster in your company
  • Measures to prevent pink collar crime
  • Investigation strategies for catching pink collar criminals
  • Considerations for interviewing the female suspect
