One of the most successful PR campaigns of the week so far has been that put forward by www.financialfraudaction.org.uk
Fraud is one of the most obvious consequences of an online/digital personal finance system and the examples put forward this week by FFA UK have been staggering in their range and complexity.
Some of the case studies followed up by public service radio including across the BBC output suggest that no one is completely immune to the terrible risks.
One of the most shocking example was of a fraudster who persuaded a woman to transfer all of her money from 3 accounts into a “safe account” by remaining on the line having told the customer to ring up and verify the fraud with her bank. because she withdrew the money her bank did not want to know.
Look at the website.
