Recent Developments in Fraud Hotlines: The Sexual Harassment Crisis

Workers have used anonymous fraud hotlines since the 1970’s to report fraud, waste and abuse. Presently, there is a heightened awareness of internal reporting due to recent high-profile sexual harassment claims in the news. Workers and investigators alike now question why these cases were unreported for so long. This talk will cover the topic of fraud hotlines and discuss their ability (and apparent inability) to generate investigative tips regarding sexual harassment cases. It will also explore the reasons why potential hotline complainants have not come forward.

Chelsea Binns is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Security, Fire and Emergency Management at the world-famous John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York City. Her first book, Fraud Hotlines: Design, Performance & Assessment, was recently published by Taylor & Francis/CRC Press. She is a licensed Private Investigator and Certified Fraud Examiner, and is the president of the New York Chapter of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners. Her research interests are focused on corporate security matters, including background checks, corporate crime, cybercrime, investigations, and organizational fraud. She has been studying fraud hotlines since 2007. She has extensive corporate security, management and investigative experience, having worked for prestigious organizations such as Citibank, Morgan Stanley, New York City’s Department of Investigation (DOI) and the New York State Office of the Attorney General. At DOI, she received hotline calls from citizens concerning fraud, waste and abuse matters. Ms. Binns has a doctorate and two master’s degrees in Criminal Justice from the CUNY Graduate Center/John Jay College of Criminal Justice.
