Financial Scams, Fraud & Criminal Activity During COVID-19
9:00 am – 10:30 am MT MORNING WEBINAR

Criminals are quick to exploit any weakness.  The COVID-19 pandemic has caused immeasurable human suffering – which is being further compounded by confidence schemes, financial scams, and outright theft.  Learn strategies to combat and preempt these fraudulent attacks.
  • What kind of frauds or robbery attempts to expect at your drive-in windows
  • How to take control of training for staff and accountholders when you reopen
  • The cold, hard facts about how this pandemic promotes fraud
  • The statistics showing growth in robberies, looting, scams, and other schemes
  • How to obtain the needed resources to handle cases that will impact your institution
  • Ways to prepare for stimulus check scams that will impact your earnings
In an environment marked by fear and anxiety due to the COVID-19 pandemic, accountholders, small businesses, and even at-home staff are increasingly becoming fraud targets.  This no-nonsense program will provide vital insights into frauds and scams during the coronavirus pandemic.  Schemes include technology scams, impersonation of government officials, door-to-door “charity” drives, or anything criminals think is plausible.  Check fraud was big before the stimulus checks. Now it will explode with fake checks, money mules, and elder fraud.
The longer the nation remains sheltered-in-place, the bigger the problems will become.  Your staff must understand how to handle this new environment – even before your doors reopen.  In fact, this program will explain how to provide lobby security in a new way.  Participants will learn how to handle scams and be provided with a list of websites where they can stay abreast of the information gained in this dynamic program.  
This informative session will benefit operations managers, risk management professionals, internal auditors, training staff, and security officers.
