AARP state scam alerts: Romance, imposter scams

February means Valentine’s Day, but romance scammers abound every month of the year. It’s important to understand that a “romance” scam isn’t about romance at all. It’s about people looking for social connection online – whether a dating site, an online game, or a neighborhood listserv. Criminal imposters are more than happy to provide that connection – at great cost.
How can you tell if your new online connection is fake and what can you do if it is? First, be wary of a new relationship with someone who suddenly bestows on you overwhelming affection; this is what criminals call “grooming.” Second, check their photos using your web browser; both Google and Bing offer image search. You may find your Romeo’s picture is actually one of a Marine sergeant’s or from a magazine ad. Most importantly, don’t engage with any financial transaction – this is the biggest red flag and the one that can cost you thousands of dollars and great emotional pain.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Federal Trade Commission received 8,257 fraud reports from consumers in Idaho in 2020, according to newly released data.
Idaho consumers reported losing a total of $10,032,295 to fraud, with a median loss of $295.
The FTC’s Consumer Sentinel Network is a database that receives reports directly from consumers, as well as from federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies, the Better Business Bureau, industry members, and non-profit organizations. This year, the FTC welcomed the data contributions of the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center, the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, and the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection. Twenty-five states now contribute to Sentinel. Reports from around the country about consumer protection issues—including identity theft, fraud, and other categories—are a key resource for FTC investigations that stop illegal activities and, when possible, provide refunds to consumers.

Compliance Professionals continue protecting their Financial Institutions during these unprecedented times. They have become a source of regulatory information for Financial Institutions facing challenges that are changing from day to day.  As the Pandemic continues, Compliance Departments and Compliance Officers working remotely bear an additional responsibility for assuring proactive risk identification, assessment, and mitigation.  Regulators expect full funding of the Compliance function.
 
Fraud, Fraud and More Fraud
Fraud is a continuously evolving threat during the Pandemic with Imposter Scams, Investment Scams Product Scams, and Insider Trading adding more stress to the compliance function.  There are fraudsters that will pretend to offer “important” information when attempting to convince individuals to click on malicious links. These links can install malware, obtain personal/confidential information, as well as login and password credentials.  Compliance Officers are usually “gatekeepers” in a Financial Institution relating to fraud scheme detection.  That said, the rise in Fraud has compounded the stress level at the compliance function.
