Fraud is becoming increasingly diverse and complex. In our digital age, criminals are using technology to their advantage and are adapting to the current preventions in place. What’s making it even harder is that fraud is no longer restricted to an individual and is instead occurring on a business level through commercial lending and trade finance fraud.
