Are You Protected Against Funds Transfer Fraud?
If you own a business, you likely rely on computers and mobile devices to manage most of your activities, including financial and banking. While computers have made transactions more convenient, it has also provided more ways for criminals to find out sensitive information and use it against you. A hacker with the right equipment and knowledge can access bank accounts and commit funds transfer fraud, which is one type of identity theft.
At Comodo, we don’t want to see a fraudulent funds transfer happen to you or your customers. Computer fraud can include:
- Using a computer or device to gain access to another computer system
- Changing information on a computer
- Stealing information stored on a computer
- Stealing passwords or finding the password and using it for personal monetary gain
- Transferring money from one bank account to another without express permission
How to Protect Yourself
A funds transfer can be done for many reasons. For example, companies send money to executives closing business deals in other cities, states or countries. They can also be used as a way to refund a customer’s money or to put money into a client’s account for various reasons.
