Free from Fraud!

Posted: 17th November 2015

It seems that every week fraudsters have developed a new scam to target business owners and individuals. Their use of technology has resulted in increasingly sophisticated methods of deception. Unfortunately, it’s an issue that affects everyone.

To help you get up to speed with all the latest trends in fraud, Thomson Cooper will be hosting a free Fraud Prevention Seminar on Thursday 3rd December at the Hilton Grosvenor in Edinburgh at 4pm. They have enlisted the help of fraud prevention expert Stewart Thom from the Royal Bank of Scotland. Stewart, currently a Customer Security Business Partner responsible for promoting awareness of Security & Fraud related risks to customers, will share his experiences and provide advice on how to stay safe. The presentation will cover many important areas including social engineering techniques, viruses and invoice/insider/cheque fraud.

Thomson Cooper Partner Andrew Croxford explains, “Having heard Stewart speak before I believe everyone will learn something of value from his presentation. This is a fantastic opportunity to discover more about how to protect you and your business.”

The event is part of Thomson Cooper’s award-winning Business Development Programme and is free to clients and non-clients. Booking is essential and spaces are limited. Please visit to book online or call Lynn Wardlaw on 0131 226 2233.
