Those who think they're protected because they don't make electronic payments or because they use positive pay are flat out wrong. What's worse, it's not just the big guys who are getting hit. The crooks are also targeting smaller mid-sized companies, municipalities, schools and not-for-profits.

Please join us for this 60-fast paced minute session with our editorial director, Mary S. Schaeffer. It contains expert advice from several respected sources.
Updated with newest fraud prevention and detection information!
Getting money out of your organization's bank account is now easier than ever. Just ask the growing number of fraudsters snatching cash from unsuspecting organizations across the country. Unfortunately, every company is at risk and businesses do not have the same fraud protections as individuals. If you don't report the thefts within 24 hours, you will probably end up eating the losses - which can be substantial.
