3 Ways To Protect Yourself Against Fraud
Fraud works best on the victim who least expects it. The best way to protect yourself and your company is by arming yourself with knowledge. Here are some of the ways you can protect yourself and conduct business safely online:
1. "Pre-qualify" carriers and build strong relationships with ones you can trust. A qualification checklist to pre-qualify carriers and other service providers could be very helpful to your operations. For a list of information to request from carriers, click here.
2. Monitor and validate documentation: contact the originator of any documents, watch for forged changes, and protect your own valuable documents.
3. Do your homework: join industry associations and subscribe to cargo crime notifications services. Screen staff and contractors, and always report fraud and theft.
