1 in 7 are victims of fraud every day. Prevention is pivotal to stopping fraud, and in many cases the tools and methods are right at our fingertips.
Having these reminders—by the phone, near your desk, or posted on the fridge—provides a first line of defense against fraud. If the criminals can’t get to you, they can’t defraud you.
