According to the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, “Fraud is the intentional manipulation of the truth for financial or personal gain. Fraud includes any intentional or deliberate act to deprive another of property or money by guile, deception, or other unfair means.” (ACFE & ACFCS). The easiest way for fraudsters to gain access to your information is through online cyber attacks. Cyber attacks are becoming more common, more dangerous, and more sophisticated than ever.
Advances in technology have given individuals the capability to conduct business, track financials, upload personal information, store passwords, and virtually do anything that the user desires, simply at the click of a button. Unfortunately, it’s just as quick for a fraudster to gain access to an individual’s personal information. A fraudster’s activity can be carried out by one individual, multiple individuals, or by an organized operation. It's important for any individual to understand helpful tricks and tips to avoid fraud vulnerability.
