ACFE Key Finding Highlights of the 2014 Report to the Nations and Global Fraud Study:   

The Impact of Occupational Fraud 
Survey participants estimated that the typical organization loses 5% of its revenues to fraud each year. Applied to the estimated 2011 Gross World Product, this figure translates to a potential projected global fraud loss of more than $3 Trillion Dollars.

The median loss caused by the occupational fraud cases in our study was $140,000.00.


More than one-fifth of these cases caused losses of at least $1 million dollars in losses. 

Fraud Detection
The frauds reported to us lasted a median of 18 months before being detected.
Occupational fraud is more likely to be detected by a tip than by any other method. 
The majority of tips reporting fraud come from employees of the victim organization.
