CASE STUDY 1: Aperio Forensics was engaged by a leading food manufacturer in Thailand to investigate the existence of a fraudulent contract with one of their suppliers. It was identified through computer forensics, photoshop forensics and interviews with staff that a recently resigned senior manager in the company had signed a contract without authorization, extending the supplier’s contract by 20 years. Examination determined that the extended contract, although based on the original, had been created and signed after the manager had resigned and therefore the document was not legitimate. The data collected assisted in successfully defending the case brought against the client by the supplier.
CASE STUDY 2: A global advertising agency acquired a Thailand-based agency. The management of the local company were retained in their current positions and agreed to continue to work for the new brand. However, soon after the acquisition, the local company began to report a significant downturn in profits. Through a computer forensic examination, it was established that the senior management of the local company had created a parallel advertising agency. Emails were uncovered implicating the managers in receiving requests for quotes whilst at the global company, and directing those quotes to the newly formed local company. It was also discovered that the senior managers attended a number of meetings representing the new local company, whilst still employed by the global firm. Aperio Forensics gave expert testimony at the Thailand Labour Courts and, as a result of the investigation, the parties agreed to a financial settlement.
