eTrain: Counterfeit Checks, Cash, & Forgeries

Counterfeit Checks, Cash, & Forgeries

Presented by Barry Thompson, Thompson Consulting Group LLC

Counterfeit checks, altered checks, washed checks. They all mean one thing — losses for the financial institution that accepts them.

In this fast moving session, fraud expert Barry Thompson will show you the methods that criminals may use to attack your institution. He will also review check fraud’s twin sister, false identification, as the criminal must possess both a fraudulent check and identification to be successful. The same techniques used to detect check fraud can help to identify counterfeit currency. You will review some of the best methods for handling counterfeit currency with your members.

You’ll also learn about:

  • How split deposits can gain confidence with your staff
  • Confidence games that get financial institutions to accept bad checks
  • Action to take when a fraudulent check is discovered
  • How easy it is for a check passer to duplicate your official checks
  • The easiest ways to identify counterfeit currency

Who Should Attend?

  • Frontline Staff
