This training program will discuss common forms of wire fraud, including: account takeover (consumer, corporate, and financial institution); false invoices / money mules and advance fee frauds; business email compromise; and supply chain fraud.

This session will take attendees into the wild world of wire fraud, focusing on fraud detection, mitigation and sound business practices to minimize the potential of loss.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define the state of wire transfer fraud
  • Investigate the implications of wire fraud
  • Identify sound business practices to thwart wire transfer fraud
  • Record options for wire transfer security controls
  • Assemble take-aways to improve internal controls

Why Should You Attend:

Wire transfer fraud has been around almost as long as the payment system itself despite numerous federal regulations intended to combat the problem. Organized crime groups continue to profit from wire fraud especially scams where they trick real business customers into sending them a wire transfer under false pretenses.

Wire fraud victims in the United States reported $748 million in losses from October 2013 through August 2015, according to the FBI's Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3). This loss is only from one form of wire fraud and what was reported to IC3; many of those businesses didn't survive the loss. In mid-2015, one San Jose, CA-based networking equipment company disclosed it lost $46.7 million through a scam where they unwittingly wired money to fraudsters.

Criminals are constantly evolving their scams to circumvent your expectations and controls. This course will arm you with vital information on the latest scams fraudsters are using to rob businesses of their assets. From business email compromise to supply chain fraud, every business is at risk as these crafty tricksters are looking for a big payday from your bottom line.
