New Fraud Prevention Guide Launched for Businesses
FraudSMART has published a new fraud prevention guide for businesses outlining the common types of financial fraud affecting Irish businesses and providing advice on how to avoid them. A copy of the guide can be downloaded here
While most businesses take steps to prevent fraud there has recently been a rise in financial fraud attacks on Irish businesses. Most frauds still use telephone and emails to commit the crime however the ways in which they are carried out are increasingly sophisticated. You are likely to get an email from somebody you “know” and “trust”. Fraudsters use publicly available information to trick you into taking an action that may not be in your business’ best interest.
