Commercial fraud, the scourge of the Credit manager
Utilising modern day tools (and some good old fashioned ones) can help combat commercial fraud. The birth of the Internet has transformed the way we do business today and opened up amazing opportunities. Unfortunately, it has also opened up opportunities for the unscrupulous individual(s). Fraudsters.
Fraud in the UK costs the economy £Billions each year and this is only reported fraud. Many companies will simply not report it for fear of embarrassment and fear that other fraudsters will also try their luck. Furthermore, they believe that the successful recovery of goods or prosecution is unlikely. Most regional police forces simply do not have the resource to investigate what can be a complex and time-consuming exercise. Ask any man or woman in the street what should be a police priority, and most will say, violent crime, burglary, anti-social behaviour etc.
The tools that the fraudster uses though can also be your tools to counter fraud. If something looks too good to be true, it probably is as a rule of thumb.
So what can you do to prevent this?
