Small business owners learn to prevent fraud

WACO, TX - Small business owners had a chance to learn to detect and prevent fraud at the free seminar, held Tuesday at Greater Waco Chamber of Commerce. 

The presentations were given by Waco police, Better Business Bureau and U.S. Merchant Payment Solutions. 

The goal was to empower small business owners in Waco area by teaching them useful tips on preventing fraud by fake credit, debit cards, checks and counterfeits. 

The employers had a chance to learn ways to train their employees but also ways to keep an eye on them as according to Ken Givens with U.S. Merchant Payment Solutions, about 26% of fraud is an inside job. 

He says counterfeit pens are no longer reliable either as scammers figured out a way around that as well.

Instead he recommends using UV light readers.
