The Fraud Triangle is a framework designed to explain a worker’s decision to commit fraud. • The pressure on the individual/incentives – is the motivation behind the crime and can be either personal financial pressure, such as debt problems, or workplace debt problems, such as a shortfall in revenue. The pressure is seen by the individual as unsolvable by orthodox, legal, sanctioned routes and unshareable with others who may be able to offer assistance. A common example of a perceived unshareable financial problem is gambling debt. Maintenance of a lifestyle is another common example. It can also be incentives or pressure from management or peers to perform at a certain level, or to exceed the performance of others. • The opportunity to commit fraud – is the means by which the individual will defraud the organization. In this stage the worker sees a clear course of action by which they can abuse their position in a way that – again, perceived by them – is unlikely to be discovered. In many cases the ability to solve the problem (pressure/incentive) in secret is key to the perception of a viable opportunity.   • The ability to rationalize the crime – is the final stage in the fraud triangle. This is a cognitive stage and requires the fraudster to be able to justify the crime in a way that is acceptable to his or her internal moral compass. Most fraudsters are first-time criminals and do not see themselves as criminals, but rather a victim of circumstance. Rationalizations are often based on external factors, such as a need to take care of a family, or a dishonest employer. The term fraud triangle was first coined by American sociologist Donald R. Cressey who worked extensively in the fields of criminology and white-collar crime. Fraud is often, but not always, a whitecollar crime. Adapted from
