We all know fraud is rampant during this challenging time with the bad guys doing what they do best, attacking vulnerable individuals who are merely trying to survive the next few months. Fraudsters are sheltering in place, as well, so they probably have a little more time on their hands to up their creativity efforts in this area. Incredibly unfortunate, but it's our reality.
To get some answers, CO-OP Financial Services Director of Fraud Services Ashley Town visited to tell us what these cybercriminals are up to and how we can combat their constant barrage of online threats. Ashley also talks about how CO-OP's COOPER Fraud Analyzer has stepped in to help out credit unions in this area (for Shared Branch Network) since it was launched this time last year.
And lastly, Ashley loves her job cracking down on these fraudsters. She gives us a bit of her background how she became a full-time, fraud fighting crusader -- sans cape.
Tons of takeaways here, so check it out and let us know your thoughts when you get a chance.
