On Guard: Check Kiting & Other Scams
June 7 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm
Defending against fraud is not an easy task for banks. Fraudsters are clever and continually devise new scams. Join Honey Shelton for this 60-minute online seminar as you learn about today’s threat landscape. Criminals who target financial institutions have become more sophisticated and use the Internet to find legitimate personal information for illegal purposes. Chat rooms, email, message boards, surveys, and fake websites are popular schemes to collect bank account numbers and personal information.
