White collar crime ‘rampant’ as nearly 900 fraud complaints go uninvestigated

From stuff.co.nz

Businesses are spending thousands of dollars on private investigators to probe white collar crime because police won’t touch fraud cases unless they are “gold plated”, sources say.

Figures released under the Official Information Act show that as at July 28, there were 888 files where a possible fraud or deception offence had been committed, but was yet to be assigned for investigation.

One business owner who detected an alleged theft by an employee was told by police they did not have resources to initiate a prosecution.

Police Association president Chris Cahill said the number of fraud files yet to be assigned was a “total reflection” of the lack of resources and overload of work shouldered by the police’s investigative units.

Every year the IRD identifies about $1.2 BILLION in fraud committed by NZ business people … and Welfare fraud? … $30 million

“Every year the IRD identifies about $1.2 BILLION [fraud]committed by NZ business people .
Yes..EVERY year.
It discovers around $30 million in welfare fraud (tiny by comparison)
Yet , as Dr Marriott discovered – welfare fraudsters are far more likely to be sent to prison than white collar criminals.” Remember our PM is a banker … our country has been heisted by corporate money interests & our welfare state is seriously in demise, thanks to the aforementioned!”

Welfare fraudsters are more likely to be sent to prison than white collar criminals who account for far more dollars lost than the former

Tax Fraud Vs Welfare Fraud
I’m on the board of the Bruce Jesson Foundation which supports investigative journalism and each year funds a lecture on some aspect of society.
This year’s lecture was by Dr Lisa Marriott from Victoria University Business School on her investigation into how and why white collar tax fraud is treated far more leniently than welfare fraud.

The size of the problem?
Every year the IRD identifies about $1.2 BILLION committed by NZ business people .
Yes..EVERY year.

It discovers around $30 million in welfare fraud (tiny by comparison)

Yet , as Dr Marriott discovered – welfare fraudsters are far more likely to be sent to prison than white collar criminals.

Why are those less advantaged in New Zealand society treated differently from those who are in relatively privileged positions? Why are white-collar tax evaders treated differently to welfare fraudsters? In the Annual Jesson Lecture in Politics for 2016, Dr Lisa Marriott considers the circumstances where this occurs, aiming to highlight and challenge issues of equity, privilege, and the construction of crime and criminals in New Zealand.

How the global financial system is essentially a giant fraud machine – Vinny Eastwood’s exposé on John Key & the Panama Papers

Remember how your government/corporation recently gambled away $200 million of Kiwisaver funds & lost it in a ‘fail safe’ investment with a Portuguese bank? Haven’t heard anything of that since have we, as in what’s to be done about it? Nobody held to account? Well here is an exposé that will make you think seriously about where you put your money. Check out our Money Trail/Banking pages.   This is about white collar crime, the crime that’s seldom mentioned in mainstream media, whilst petty crime makes the headlines. Focusing on the theft of  minor sums of money and so forth keeps our eyes off the breathtaking theft of the banking fraternity and their criminal ilk.     EnvirowatchRangitikei
