Stop the Bleed: Catch Customer Fraud at Point of Entry
According to the Kroll Global Fraud Report (2009), in the current economic climate, people who are used to a certain level of comfort – and credit – may resort to fraud to continue in the style to which they have become accustomed.
With layoffs at record highs and creditors vying to recover debts, people can’t continue to live as they have on borrowed money, maintaining expensive cars, large mortgages, and private school fees, among other commitments.
So what’s a business to do? You’re probably not gaining new customers as quickly as before the recession, so you have to make concessions. Maybe you’ve lowered prices. Maybe you extend credit to people you might not have before. Maybe you give people more time to pay or waive penalties. These are all acceptable methods of keeping business going in tough times.
But what happens when desperate people resort to fraud and identity theft and involve your business?
