Insurance fraud investigations and verifications
Audits and investigations in the areas of insurance fraud (§265 of the German Criminal Code – StGB) and fraud to the detriment of insurance companies (§263 of the German Criminal Code – StGB).
Insurance fraud is a social problem, and the cases reported annually are only the tip of the iceberg. The number of unreported cases is many times higher, and the sometimes exorbitantly high losses inevitably lead to an increase in insurance rates or a reduction in insurance benefits.
This in turn influences the decision of potential insurance customers.
Forensic investigations in the area of white-collar crime
As soon as you learn of a suspected fraudulent act, your next steps are of great importance.
Expectations in dealing with white-collar crime have also increased among employees, business partners and authorities.
Wrong or too slow reactions have a big impact in individual cases and worsen the damage.
A professional investigation team can quickly gain reliable findings. Correct analysis and the right measures are crucial.
We investigate the nature and extent of fraudulent acts, irregularities and breaches of duty.

Research and analysis of data on the public web
Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) uses information from open, freely available sources to gain relevant insights.
SOCMINT stands for Social Media Intelligence, and this refers to the processing of information from user generated content on social media platforms.
Humant Intelligence (HUMINT) ncludes all forms of interpersonal contact within a network.
ECRA GmbH uses these sources of information in a goal-oriented manner, both via primary and secondary sources.
Dealing with fraudulent activities as a cross-sectional task
Fraud, money laundering, corruption or embezzlement: white-collar crime causes damages in the billions every year. Companies must always be active to prevent any form of white-collar crime and internal corporate crime.
With the Anti-Fraud Management Assessment, ECRA GmbH can not only support you in evaluating your measures to protect against white-collar crime, but also point out solutions and methods to improve preventive measures.
Fraud Management is understood as a cross-sectional task/responsibility, in which almost all organizational units are to be directly/indirectly involved. Depending on the calculated prognosis of a possible loss, work must be carried out on a departmental basis and measures must be bundled.
An effectively implemented and continuously performed AFM serves to prevent, detect and prosecute deliberate violations.
Consulting and support in the area of compliance and CM systems
Today, compliance management systems (CM systems) are an important component of entrepreneurial activity.
Companies must meet legal requirements and observe compliance rules.
ECRA GmbH analyses the current status and determines a need for action.
The auditing approaches are based on the Auditing Standard 980 published by the Institute of Public Auditors in Germany (IDW) under the umbrella of the seven compliance elements.
