Everyone is familiar with the big-name corporate and financial frauds that make national news. But although high-profile names like Enron and Madoff make headlines, businesses like yours are getting hit day after day with schemes and scams that are less obvious but every bit as onerous. From traditional financial statement fraud, to sophisticated e-mail spoofing schemes, to “old school” credit fraud tactics such as same name and ship-to scams, devious charlatans are just a mouse click away from wreaking havoc on your bottom line – and, in some instances, even the viability of your business as a whole. This program deals with credit and payment fraud, the schemes modern fraudsters frequently employ, red flags and warning signs, and the defensive tactics, tips, and tools to protect yourself and your business from the havoc that fraudsters seek to create. The program also deals with increased fraud risk arising from remote work and actual fraud war stories by credit professionals. The results of prior polling of trade creditors on fraud issues are also discussed.
