The sign industry has become increasingly fragmented as the entry thresholds are notoriously low. This has led to under-capitalised companies being set up with no means of providing effective business leadership. These companies often turn to fraud or breaches of health and safety to remain in the market. This not only puts the company itself at risk of legal peril, but also the unknowing customer.
Most frauds commonly executed may be seen as insignificant. However if a sign company is contracted to cover multiple sites, it may be surprising how substantial the opportunities for fraud are. The potential financial and legal repercussions can be commercially damaging for both companies involved. See examples of industry fraud
