New fraud prevention guide launch for business
FraudSMART is a fraud prevention initiative which aims to raise consumer and business awareness of the latest financial fraud activity.
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.
A copy of the FraudSMART business brochure ‘Protect Your Business from Fraud’ is available on the FraudSMART website - https://www.fraudsmart.ie/resources/downloads/ - where you will also find a host of information, resources and can sign up for fraud alerts.
FraudSMART is led by Banking & Payments Federation Ireland in conjunction with the banking sector.
