This webinar provides attendees with tips to avoid check fraud losses, as well as an overview of the laws that apply to loss allocation when check fraud occurs.
Check fraud losses are estimated to exceed $18 billion each year. A recent nationwide counterfeit check operation was projected to have caused over $9 million in losses. With more and more counterfeit checks flooding financial institutions, this number is sure to increase. Unfortunately, many financial institutions fail to teach front-line staff the fundamentals of avoiding check fraud. Further, when a loss does occur, these institutions don’t understand how the law allocates the loss. If you’re confused about what your financial institution can do to prevent losses, as well as what your legal responsibility might be in various check fraud situations, this seminar is for you. This session will focus on the best practices that can be employed by banks rather than looking at any particular state’s laws.
