Common Types of Business (Corporate) Fraud

9 Things Your Business Can Do to Avoid Fraud

  1. Keep all software and business technology up to date.
  2. Enable dual approval abilities and two-factor authentication where possible.
  3. Train your employees on how to identify fraud and what to do if they suspect fraud has occurred.
  4. Confirm any email request asking to change vendor or payee information via phone call to a phone number previously on file.
  5. Check your bank account activity daily.
  6. Turn on account alerts in Business Online Banking.
  7. Stop and think about whether the website, email address or piece of mail could be fake. If it doesn’t feel right, trust your instincts!
  8. Do not give out personal information via phone, email, or text. Reputable companies will never ask you for it.
  9. Keep your contact information up to date so Park Bank can reach you if we suspect fraud.
Remember! Park Bank will NEVER ask you for your Online Banking password or your debit card PIN. For your security, please do not give this information out to anyone, whether online, or by email, by phone, by text, or in person.
