10th Webinar: Protect Your Business from Email Compromise Scams

Business email compromise (BEC) scams target specific individuals with emails that direct them to send money to “new” bank account for trusted business leaders, partners, customers, employees, or homebuyers. BEC fraud has resulted in more losses than any other type of fraud in the U.S, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI). This serious and growing fraud has tripled over the last three years and jumped 50% in the first three months of 2019 compared to the same period in 2018. In 2018, 80% of businesses received at least one of these emails.

Join us, as we welcome BBB International Investigations Specialist Steve Baker, who will give us BEC red flags, real-life examples and tips on what to do if your business is a victim of this scam.

Highly successful people not only know the things that can hold them back but what to do about them too. In this session, we will identify what the main barriers to professional success are. Learn the psychological theory about how people store up feelings called "Stamp Collecting." Learn how to overcome your money concepts, and if you don't think you have them, you do! Get over your technique barrier (how and what you do to get things accomplished). And the most important piece, learn how to get over your conceptual barriers.
