Abstract

The 2010 biennial survey shows that the total amount reported as having been lost to fraud has increased significantly, from $301m to $345m, with 15% of respondents experiencing at least one incident of fraud since February 2008. Gambling is a major fraud motivation in 2.1% of cases, compared with personal financial pressure (3.1%) and greed / lifestyle (92.7%). The average loss associated with gambling has reduced substantially from $1.1m in 2008 to $0.175m in 2010. Fraud due to gambling still has the second highest 'value' after greed / lifestyle ($1.59m).
