Fighting Fraud from Miami to Vancouver

ACFE Member Profile


As the vice president and head of anti-fraud and corporate governance, Guiseppe Tritto knows how wide fraud investigations can span. From Miami to Vancouver, Tritto supervises and monitors all corporate and investment banking anti-fraud efforts in North America for BNP Paribas. Aligning those efforts across an organization, and a continent, can be a daunting, but necessary task.


What trends are you currently seeing in fraud investigations?  

We have received several requests for support for Internet-related fraud schemes. Currently the level of sophistication of these schemes is remarkable and requires more in-depth review of the materials and particular attention to details.


Please describe your most memorable case and its resolution -- feel free to use pseudonyms for suspects if the case is ongoing and no judgment has yet been made.  

When I worked for the Italian government as a special agent for the Italian Treasury I uncovered a major scheme involving sensitive figures. The scheme focused on a government insurance agency involving fraud, corruption, money laundering and bribery on a large scale. It eventually resulted in the seizure of hundreds of millions of dollars and the arrest of several public figures.


What advice would you give to someone hoping to follow a similar career path as you? 

Believe in what you do and provide the best service based on ethics, knowledge and a spirit of cooperation. Sometimes what we uncover is not pleasant, but nevertheless our mission is to prevent fraudsters and white-collar crimes criminals from exploiting our organizations.
