Join us as we take an informative, and sometimes shocking, tour of the underground fraud economy. This session will examine social media fraud schemes and feature a live demo of the Telegram app as speakers discuss how it may be used by fraudsters to facilitate myriad fraud types relating to checks, cards, and ACH.
