Visa Canada visited CFIB’s My StartUp blog this week to help small business owners prevent card-not-present fraud. Despite the fact that less than 1% of credit cards are compromised, this is still a crucial topic for Fraud Prevention Month, since credit card fraud is one of the most common types of fraud in the retail business.
A big part of preventing credit card fraud is knowing what to look for and training your staff on the hallmarks of this type of fraud. That is why the Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) has created a free downloadable poster for you to hang in your place of business. It contains tips and info that will help orient your employees to help you prevent credit card fraud.
You can download the poster on CFIB’s fraud prevention web page in 8.5 x 11 or 11 x17 formats.
And please keep coming back to CFIB’s My StartUp blog for more great tips and info throughout the month of March. Our Business Counsellors answer about 30,000 calls from small business owners each year on virtually any business topic, issue or question that matters to you. Many of the calls our counsellors receive are fraud-related and throughout the month we will share their stories and tips to help you fight fraud.
