Booklet & Webinar Help Brokers Combat Fraud

The Transportation Intermediaries Association (TIA) recently published the 2014 Framework to Combat Fraud. A year in the making, this 40-page booklet was compiled by the TIA’s 38-member Fraud Prevention Task Force.

The booklet provides a wealth of information on the scope of fraud in the industry, as well as tips on how to prevent fraud, and what brokers should do if they find themselves victims of fraud.

The booklet was distributed to all attendees at TIA’s annual conference last month. For those who missed the show, TIA has scheduled the following webinar:

TIA members can register for free here. Non-TIA-members can register for $195 here. All webinar participants will receive a copy of the 2014 Framework to Combat Fraud. TIA members can order additional copies of the booklet by going here.

“The publication of this booklet is not the culmination of our efforts. It’s just one step in our ongoing fight against fraud in the industry,” said Nancy O’Liddy, TIA’s Director of Government Affairs and staff representative for the TIA Fraud Prevention Task Force.

In upcoming blog posts I hope to relate some of the key findings from the Fraud Prevention Task Force. In the meantime, you can read my previous blog post How to Avoid a Fuel Advance Scam.
