Frequently Asked Questions
Q: WHY SUBSCRIBE TO FRAUD HOTLINE?
A: Fraud Hotline, LLC is an affordable anonymous and confidential reporting service for potential fraud, ethical issues, and other concerns. Our clients are committed to maintaining high integrity and transparency within their organization. Other hotline providers may charge based upon number of employees or annual revenue and may use your reports as a way to sell you additional services. Our annual fee is all you pay – there are no additional costs or hidden sales motives.
According to the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners Report on Occupational Fraud and Abuse, “Proactive detection measures — such as hotlines…are vital in catching frauds early and limiting their losses”
We believe in the importance of our service and appreciate the contribution that nonprofit organizations make in our communities. As a result, we offer a 50% discount to all nonprofit organizations.
Q: HOW DO I SUBMIT A REPORT?
A: Reports may be submitted 24-hours a day using our secure website form or via our toll-free voicemail number. You must have your company code to submit a report. Your company code can be found on your workplace poster or in correspondence from your organization regarding the service.
Q: WHO WILL RECEIVE A COPY OF THE REPORTS?
Q: WHAT MATERIALS WILL MY ORGANIZATION RECEIVE?
A: Organizations register for our services online and may designate up to three individuals to receive confidential copies via email of their organization’s reports. In addition, organizations will receive an information package including a workplace poster, unique company code, and electronic versions of materials to share via email. Employers may maintain their contact information and update the report recipients using their online account login.
Q: I HAVE NOT RECEIVED ANY REPORTS, DO I REALLY NEED A FRAUD HOTLINE?
A: Fraud, ethical issues, or other concerns can arise at any time. Although you may have not yet received a report from your employees, volunteers, board members, or others within the organization, it does not mean that you will not receive one in the future. Simply having Fraud Hotline serves as a “perceived control” that may discourage unwanted behavior within your organization.
