In our continuing series examining frauds that target corporation, we will examine a scam known as duplicate payment fraud. Duplicate payments may not always be attributed to fraud. In many cases, the duplicate payment may be caused by poor administration of a company’s master vendor file. Or a duplicate payment could be initiated through a billing error by the company who is owed the money. These errors are often detected and usually reconciled through communication between the vendor and the customer.
