September is ARC Fraud Awareness Month
Payment fraud is a rapidly growing problem, costing U.S. travel agencies millions of dollars per year. How much is fraud hurting your agency’s bottom line?
To help you combat fraud, ARC has teamed up with a group of international participants to bring you ARC Fraud Awareness Month. Throughout the month of September, we will host a series of dynamic webinars on fraud prevention, with presenters from law enforcement, the private sector and ARC. These webinars will provide insights into current fraud trends, the cost to your business, and practical tips and tools to protect your agency.
With subjects ranging from the Dark Web to security, ARC Fraud Awareness Month will be a rich resource for your agency. A mix of live and recorded webinars makes it easy for you and your teams to participate.
Tip of the Week: Be Aware of Common Schemes Used by Fraudsters
Fraudsters are often creative in the schemes they devise to take advantage of travel agents’ propensity to go above and beyond to help their customers. The information that fraudsters provide to travel agents makes them appear as legitimate customers with plausible reasons for ordering tickets with close-in departure dates. Fraudsters can create a compelling story as to why an agent should help them or may create a sense of urgency to get the agent to lower their guard and get tickets issued. Once tickets are issued, the fraudsters alert their customers that they are ready to travel.
