Romance scams, employment scams, government grant scams, fraud department impersonation scams - name practically any scam, and you can be sure the pandemic made it easier than ever for scammers to trick consumers in 2020. The job loss, isolation and uncertainty experienced by so many caused widespread vulnerability, creating a perfect storm of opportunity for fraudsters all over the world. Most of these scams have common elements that can be tracked by manual and automated processes, and something as simple as implementing preventative training for frontline staff can make a measurable impact in reducing the financial devastation often experienced by scam victims.
While we will never be able to catch it all, there is always room for improvement where fraud mitigation is concerned.
