We were proud to participate in the National Association of State Comptrollers (NASC) virtual conference. Paymerang CEO, Nasser Chanda, joined Mark Merry, CPA, Assistant Director, Department of Financial Services, Division of Accounting and Auditing, at State of Florida and Jim McClurkin, Director, Public Sector at SAP Concur on a panel to discuss electronic payment fraud management.
Payment fraud risk is a very real threat to organizations—and is
at an all-time high. Moreover, it’s not just your checks that are at risk. Fraudsters are using new tools and
sophisticated schemes to infiltrate electronic payments to suppliers. One error
in processing an ACH or wire transfer could cost millions of dollars and
result in significant embarrassment for finance teams.
the least secure payment method. Checks can easily be intercepted, white-washed and
cashed, leaving buyers with the expense of investigation, the cost to re-issue
checks, and losses.
But that doesn’t mean that paying suppliers electronically is
without risk. Automated Clearing House
(ACH) debit fraud is at all-time peak and shows no signs of slowing down. What’s
more, ACH credit fraud has increased steadily since 2012, and business email
compromise (BEC) attacks have resulted in significantly higher levels of wire
transfer fraud. These sobering stats are from the Association of Finance
Professionals’ (AFP) 2019 Payments
Fraud and Control Survey.
The good news is there are safeguards and best practices that can
help organizations mitigate their fraud risk.
