Businesses are exposed to potential fraud every single day. In addition to point of sales fraud, breach of contract, and other issues, there is the embezzlement of delivered or received items.

If you have been accused of inventory fraud, it is important to secure a Minneapolis criminal defense attorney as soon as possible so work can begin on your defense.
Types Of Inventory Embezzlement
The most common inventory embezzlement scheme is simple theft. Perhaps this involves collusion between the delivery person and the person receiving the inventory. The receiving clerk signs for fewer items than received and the unaccounted for items are sold to other parties for a profit. Inaccurate completion of load sheets is common in such schemes.
Another form of inventory embezzlement is ordering excess inventory and then converting the excess for personal use. Sometimes a person will have the items delivered to another business or their personal residence. For instance, a construction worker ordered too much inventory, removed it from the job site and sold the items to other parties.
Submitting invoices for products never received or services never rendered is also considered a type of embezzlement of delivered or received items.
