What does a Fraud Analyst do?

A Fraud Analyst detects fraudulent financial activity in bank accounts and transactions. You’ll monitor bank activity and be aware of anything that may be suspicious. You might collect evidence of fraud and take relevant action. Fraud Analysts often work for banks or other financial institutions, but you may also be employed by a private investigative company.

Fraud Analysts need to be good with numbers and have excellent attention to detail. You’ll need to be able to follow procedures correctly and understand banking systems and legislation. It’s important that you can perform a detailed analysis and prepare reports on your findings.
