> Webinar: Detecting Counterfeit Items & Fraudulent ID

Wednesday, September 11, 2013

Protecting your credit union and members is everyone’s responsibility – especially the frontline. When an unknown member approaches the teller line, there are only three items tellers can use to detect fraud: the item presented, the individual presenting the item, and the identification the individual provides.

False identification, counterfeit items, and scams that can fool an untrained person mean major losses for the credit union. The person trying to defraud the credit union relies on only a cursory review of his/her identification. The ID doesn’t have to be perfect – it just has to pass an inattentive or rushed inspection.

This webinar will teach staff how false identification can be produced, while providing knowledge on how to analyze identification. Scams used by money mules or con-artists to rush staff through transactions will be included. Participants will also learn tips and techniques to help determine if signatures on negotiable items were traced, forged, or altered. This program will instruct those staff members most likely to encounter these attacks on how to identify and stop the criminal.
