Level 2 Fraud Management & Anti-Money Laundering Awareness Certification
Having the ability to identify the signs of fraud is important for a variety of positions, but especially if you own your own business. Money laundering, which is often how a criminal will hide assets that have been fraudulently gained, is a problem that is intricately connected to the issue of fraud, and therefore it is vital to be aware of it. While at times overlooked, billions are lost annually due to cases of fraud.
These losses could damage a business or reputation or even cause an organisation to fail. This is why being aware of the many tools and skills available to detect cases of fraud are absolutely essential and, as an employer, it always makes a lot of sense to familiarise as many of your staff as possible on this issue.
