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.
Spearheaded by the leadership at Saco & Biddeford Savings, other members of the Maine Fraud Prevention Alliance (MFPA) include: AARP Maine, Allen Insurance & Financial, Bar Harbor Bank & Trust, Bath Savings Institution, Biddeford 50+ Club, Biddeford Police Department, Broadreach Public Relations, Falmouth Police Department, Franklin Savings Bank, Maine Bankers Association, Maine Identity Services, LLC, Maine Senior College Network, Old Orchard Beach Police Department, P&C Insurance, PL Design, Saco Police Department, Scarborough Community Services, Southern Maine Agency on Aging and The First.
