  • Fraud does not limit itself to any particular business, it impacts all industries. While technology is improving and businesses are leveraging increasingly sophisticated fraud prevention methods, fraud is still on the rise.  In early 2020 the world shifted to a more remote, online environment and with that shift, came a 7% increase in fraud in the United States.  

    For banks and financial institutions, just one case of fraud can cost a business thousands of dollars. This makes it important to catch fraud before it happens and prevent lost revenue. Read these 4 fraud stories to see ways people and businesses have fallen victim to fraudsters:

  • Fake IDs are growing both in number and sophistication as identity thieves get more and more accurate with the details. Whether you are a bouncer at a club, a bartender serving alcohol, or a tobacco or cannabis shop, you must learn to verify an ID properly and detect a fake one from a mile away.

  • With the new advancements in modern tech, catching fakes in real-time can be tricky. But just as your team is getting quicker at identifying fake IDs, identity fraudsters are advancing their methods for obtaining and generating fakes that can bypass security measures.

  • As new innovative methods for combating traditional identity theft continue to pop up, fraudsters have found new ways of getting around those roadblocks. That’s why there’s been an influx of synthetic fraud cases in the last few years. This means that rather than assuming an individual’s identity, fraudsters are now creating completely new identities based on a variety of real identity elements.
