Webinar: Detecting Counterfeit Items & Fraudulent ID

Start: 3:00 pm
End: 4:30 pm
Event Days: 09/11/2013 - 09/11/2013

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.

This webinar will teach you 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. You'll also learn tips and techniques to help determine if signatures on negotiable items were traced, forged or altered.
