1.0     PRODUCTION

1.1     BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

The mere pronouncement of the word, “Fraud”, before people sends a wave of doubts, curiosity, anxiety and concern in general in them as regards the satiety of their resources, be they financial or otherwise. Fraud is seen by people as an enemy, moreover on their own assets even when they themselves are cleaver fraudsters economy education agriculture, mining, production, banking etc.

In the Nigerian banking industry, fraud is as old as the system itself, dating back to the period between 1982 and 1952 period commonly referred to as “free banking era” in Nigeria, when there was no form of banking act or ordinance to regulate the establishment and operations of commercial banks or a central bank to supervise and control banks within this period, expatriate and indigenous bank were established, all being commercial bank these banks were:

6)                The Africa Continental Bank Plc in 1974; and

7)                Other indigenous banks that failed following the introduction of banking ordinance of 1975 whose provisions they cold not meet.

Some of these banks that were registered between 1892 never opened their doors for business even for a day while some simple collected customers deposits and vanished. Those that failed were for reasons traceable to fraud, mismanagement and lack of government patronage. The consequences were the depletion of the individuals and organizations concerned and the nation in general, funds needed for development and upliftment of living standards.
