Course Description

Futuristic payment systems have always been the flag-bearers of convenience and safety. Systems like eChecks and mobile banking, including Mobile Remote Deposit Capture (mRDC), have been gaining popularity, with mRDC becoming one of the most sought-after mobile applications offered by financial institutions.

With the new pandemic situation, electronic and digital payments have become ubiquitous and are being exploited by fraudsters of all stripes. eChecks experienced fraud shortly after being launched, and mRDC double presentments and their subsequent losses are  being reported with increasing frequency.

As an expert on the subjects of Check 21 and Holder In Due Course, Greg Litster, founder and president of SAFEChecks, explains how little-known Check 21 and Holder In Due Course rules can mitigate such losses. This is a must-attend webinar for accountants and tax practitioners who can and should educate their clients on fraud prevention.

Learning Objectives

  • To identify various payment fraud schemes that take advantage of cutting-edge technology
  • To develop specific, straightforward strategies for preventing all types of check fraud.

It was very good. Excellent topic and content! A note that we are instructed to watch the video in entirety for credit....I would assume the percentage mark would go to 100%. After the video ended it stayed at 99.84%.....I'm seeing that for about 13 minutes....just a picky point you may want to look at .
