IAFCI NSW Chapter Quarter #3 Meeting, 21 September 2018

Tuesday, 25 September 2018

 Michelle Novotny attended the recent meeting of the NSW Chapter of the International Association of Financial Crimes Investigators (IAFCI) in Sydney.  The session allowed member representatives from the banking, betting, insurance and motor finance industries to provide updates to the group on fraud trends that they are seeing within their various organisations.  Alex Cherniakov of (credit bureau) Equifax provided statistics for recent years by fraud type and advised that identity takeover has grown significantly.  The top three fraud types all rely on false documentation.  It is evident that, even in this digital age, document fraud is rife.  If you are investigating or litigating a matter of possible fraud and come across questionable documentation, the forensic document examiners at Forensic Document Services Pty Ltd can assist you in determining their genuineness or otherwise.
