I was just assigned as a sales manager for a set of countries I previously had under my direct responsibility, and I used to travel there. Now the person who travels to these countries has presented an expense report, in which he spent 3 times more than what is normal on transportation (not including air tickets), when this individual didn't have to do any specially long trip, also he's spent around 15% more on meals by going to very expensive places.
I have suspicions on this being a fraud to the company, in which this person is trying to get extra money by filling blank receipts. This I cannot prove, but what I do know is that the amounts spent are way beyond what the real costs are.
This person was demoted from a management position, and stayed in the company because he didn't have any more options. I take it that he may be trying to compensate income lost by doing this.
I would greatly appreciate some guidance on how to talk with this person on this.
