Financial statement fraud is a costly problem for society and so better aids, such as detection models, are needed to make detection faster and more effective. The choice of which independent variables to use in such models is crucial, but surprisingly the selection process in prior research is not standardised. Consequently, a new framework is proposed for this, the Fraud Detection Triangle (FDT). The FDT adapts the well-known Fraud Triangle, which was originally designed to explain the drivers of fraudulent behaviour rather than its detection. Each original factor is extended, and a new one, Suspicious Information, is included.
