Avoiding Check Fraud Liability: From Prevention to Loss Allocation Webinar

Register

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.
