fraud prevention

Fraud can happen to any business

A Central Wisconsin company had its computer system compromised. A fraudulent ACH file was initiated to move funds to various bank accounts throughout the United States.

By the time the company discovered the fraud the next day and notified their bank, it was too late. It had been over 24 hours since the file was initiated and there was little that could be done to recover the funds. The company lost over $250,000 due to the fraudulent ACH.

Peoples has fraud prevention tools to prevent fraud from happening to your business.
