1. Aschendorf, Cynthia Bernice. Handwriting as individualisation technique in fraud investigation .

Degree: 2013, University of South Africa

The aim of this research is to investigate how handwriting as an individualisation technique in fraud investigation can be used by police detectives, SARS investigators and forensic investigation specialists, who are responsible for the investigation and linking the perpetrator, with a view to criminal prosecution. A further intent was to share and introduce a number of important concepts, namely: criminal investigation, identification, individualisation, fraud, evidence and handwriting. The research will explain the sophisticated investigation techniques used to obtain sufficient information to prove the true facts in a court of law. Identification is the collective aspect of the set of characteristics by which an object is definitively recognisable or known, while the individual characteristics establish the individuality of a specific object. Many types of evidence may be used to link an individual with a crime scene, and associate that individual with the performed illegal handling. It also explained that during a cheque/document fraud investigation, it is in most cases the only link to information to trace, identify and individualise the perpetrator, and to obtain a handwriting specimen. It is also discussed how to eliminate a person being a writer of a document, and how to collect, package and mark a disputed document during the investigation. If the investigators use their knowledge of these concepts, it should enhance their investigative skills, and empower them to be become better equipped for the challenges they face in identifying, individualising and linking the perpetrators, in order to ensure successful prosecution and conviction. Advisors/Committee Members: Benson, Bernadine Carol (advisor), Olivier, Nicolaas Jacobus Campher (advisor).

2. Mahlangu, Glenda Safedi. Examining compliance procedures in the investigation of tender irregularities .

Degree: 2019, University of South Africa

This study examined the investigation of tender irregularities within the City of Tshwane Metropolitan Municipality (CoT) and employed semi-structured interviews with investigators attached to the CoT Group Audit and Risk (GAR) Division within the Protection Service to obtain data. A literature study relating to aspects of tender irregularities and the investigation of non-compliance was conducted. From the results of this research, it appears that participants do not optimally investigate the non-compliance of tender procedures by service providers to reduce tender irregularities within the CoT. However, it is apparent that participants experience challenges to efficiently investigate the non-compliance of tender procedures by service providers within the CoT to reduce tender irregularities. The study makes recommendations that could assist investigators at the CoT GAR Division to enhance their investigations of the non-compliance of tender procedures by service providers. Advisors/Committee Members: Van Graan, Johannes Gerhardus (advisor), Lekubu, Bernard Khotso (advisor).

3. Garimella, Purnachandra. Influence of clinical research investigator fraud on clinical trial participation.

Degree: MS, Health Sciences, 2010, Eastern Michigan University

The number of clinical research investigators whom the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has disqualified or totally restricted has been increasing since 1964. In addition, several public polls and surveys indicate a major dilemma in clinical trial participation and public perceptions of clinical research. This research investigates how clinical investigator fraud or misconduct influences public perceptions of participation in clinical trials. To meet this challenge, a welldesigned electronic survey was developed for the faculty at Eastern Michigan University (EMU). The survey results indicate that 79% of respondents were ―very likely‖ to be influenced by fraud committed by their own physicians. However, when the fraud has been committed at a hospital elsewhere, only approximately 20% of respondents reported that they were ―very likely‖ to be influenced. These results, however, reflect only a select group of people. Further studies on larger populations are recommended to learn about the impact of investigator fraud on patient recruitment. Advisors/Committee Members: Irwin Martin, PhD, Chair, Joseph A Scazzero, PhD, Jan L Hewett, BSN, JD.
