Image result for business scams

Scams can impact every business, regardless of location, size, or industry. BBB research suggests that scam activity directed at small businesses is growing, that these scams pose a significant risk, and that they can result in a higher monetary loss than those targeting individuals. Join us to learn about scams and how to protect your business and your employees.
