This training program will discuss common forms of wire fraud such as: account takeover (consumer, corporate, and institution internal accounts); false invoices / money mules and advance fee frauds; business email compromise; and supply chain fraud. It will also discuss wire fraud detection, fraud mitigation, and sound business practices to thwart attempts.

Every industry is prone to wire transfer fraud. While staggering losses continue to mount, research shows many of the schemes could have been avoided if employees knew what to look for, and if they employed some very simple internal processes.

Wire transfer fraud has been around almost as long as the payment system itself despite numerous federal regulations intended to combat the problem. Organized crime groups continue to profit from wire fraud, especially scams where they trick real business customers into sending them a wire under false pretenses.

In just two short months in late 2014, U.S. businesses lost an estimated $180million to one form of wire fraud alone; many of those businesses didn’t survive the loss. In mid-2015, one San Jose, CA-based networking equipment company disclosed it lost $46.7 million through a scam where they unwittingly wired money to fraudsters.

Criminals are constantly evolving their scams to circumvent your expectations and controls. This course will arm you with vital information on the latest scams fraudsters are using to rob businesses of their assets. From business email compromise to supply chain fraud, every business is at risk as these crafty tricksters are looking for a big payday, from your bottom line.
