Since we’re talking fraud prevention this month, here’s a quick update from the front line. Check these numbers out.

Since January of 2023, we’ve closed over NINE THOUSAND accounts. And since then, we’ve seen a 65% drop in reported fraud incidents.  No Valentine for them!

The numbers speak for themselves – the gloves are off. Fraudsters are getting the boot over here.  But that doesn’t mean you can be any less diligent. The bad guys are now deploying sophisticated phishing scams, often disguised as password reset requests. Stay strong, and when in doubt, trust your “spidey sense!”

Lastly, we are fast approaching our first DAT Engage meetings of the year (Dallas, TX) and the unofficial kick-off to the tradeshow season. We’ll see you in the field!
