In This Issue:

  • The Price of ‘Free’ Wi-Fi: Wi-Fi connections are easy to find, and fraudsters know this. Not only can they hack into your laptop while you are on an unsecured wireless network and steal your identity, they can steal files off of your computer hard drive, as well.
  • Don’t Fall for Vacation Scams: When you think of a vacation during the winter months, you think of warm tropical islands, beaches, and memories that will last a lifetime. One thing you don’t tend to think of is vacation scams.
  • The IRS Will NOT E-Mail You: A fake e-mail from the IRS might look legitimate, it might even have the IRS logo, but remember… the IRS will never e-mail you.

 

The Embezzler | Fall 2012 Newsletter



In This Edition

  • Fraud Happens Everywhere: As we listen to stories of fraud in our homes across Western and Central Michigan, it’s hard to imagine embezzlement or fraud happening in our small business. But, it does happen more frequently, and goes on for perhaps longer than we think.
  • Holiday Scam Alert: Gift Card Stripping: Gift cards are one of the most popular presents of the holiday season, but could they lead to disappointment from the recipient?
  • Tis the Season to…Hire Temporary Employees: While this time of year is busy for stores looking to hire people quickly, some forget one important step — background checks.
  • H&S Employee Receives Recognition For Work on Fraud Case: Tamra Matthews started working in the H&S Companies Mount Pleasant location just a few short months ago, and she is already making a name for herself in the community.
  • Profile of a Perp: Typical traits of the Occupational Fraudster.
