It is pretty hard to answer that question, because there are so many options here. I would suggest taking the SANS 572 course, which will give you an excellent kick-start and insight in your options in this area of expertise.

..frauds do happen in a network environment.... ?

Attacks like Ransomware are not fraud but they are extortion. Malware/Virus/Trojans etc. are criminal damage and so on. None of these are fraud in themselves so something else would have to happen. Stealing credit card details is not fraud unless they are used in fraudulent transactions.

wrongful or criminal deception intended to result in financial or personal gain.

synonyms: fraudulence, sharp practice, cheating, swindling, trickery, artifice, deceit, deception, double-dealing, duplicity, treachery, chicanery, skulduggery, imposture, embezzlement......

deception, trick, cheat, hoax, subterfuge, stratagem, wile, ruse, artifice, swindle, racket; informal scam, con, con trick, rip-off, leg-pull, sting, gyp, kite, diddle, fiddle, swizzle; and so on.

I suspect if you were to consider identifying what you mean by "fraud" this might help towards suggesting tools.
