Employment Scams – Profiting from an Economic Recession

By Diane Dylinski | February 16, 2021
The current high unemployment level in the United States, combined with the increase in legitimate remote (work from home) positions, has created a fertile environment in which employment scams are flourishing.

Triangle Fraud: A Crime with Triple the Number of Victims

By Diane Dylinski | December 11, 2019
Triangle fraud involves a unique twist on the sale of stolen goods. This fraud gets its name from the crime resulting in three different parties falling victims to the scheme: a cardholder, a merchant, and a buyer. The maneuver is made deliberately complex to obscure the criminal’s identity and make it difficult to follow the flow of funds. To understand why triangle fraud exists, one must think like a criminal. Tangible goods purchased online must get shipped to a physical location where someone has to retrieve the merchandise. The inherent risk for theft is being caught as the receiver of stolen property. Criminals attempt to sidestep this issue by shipping stolen goods to a third party.

The Cloak of Technology: Rising to the Challenges of Online Banking and E-Commerce

By Diane Dylinski | July 2, 2019
The last two decades have seen a virtual explosion in online financial activity. Widespread adoption of applications (apps) running on smart phones and tablets offer a new level of portability and faster funds transfers. Customers can link bank accounts, credit cards and debit cards to apps to facilitate payments from any location. The inevitable tradeoff for this convenience is that criminals are now hiding behind the cloak of technology in their attempts to quickly move funds and avoid detection. New technology gives rise to concerns regarding customer identity, exploitation of the technology, and a sharp rise in online scams.
