Case Location: Sao Paulo, Brazil


The client company’s Chairman and Chief Financial Officer were both dismissed.  Subsequently, the former executives sued the company, demanding compensation for breach of contract. The company called Pinkerton in to determine if any questionable financial dealings had taken place under the executives’ watch.


Through their expertise in forensic accounting, Pinkerton agents found:

  • Evidence of the misuse of corporate credit cards
  • Unauthorized increase of contributions to pension funds
  • Other unauthorized fiscal abnormalities


Pinkerton was able to prove that the final values of the misappropriated funds were well in excess of the lawsuit amounts.  As a result, the case was dismissed by the court.
