Bill Adair to delivers training on small business fraud

Walker County District Attorney, Bill Adair presented an East Walker County Chamber quarterly training session. Businessmen and women from East Walker and West Jefferson listened as the DA presented information on the types of fraud faced by businesses every day.

 

The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners estimates that a typical small business owner loses 5% of its revenues to fraud each year. In 2011, this translated into a loss of more than $3.5 trillion dollars worldwide. Fraud involves counterfeit bills, worthless checks, employee pilfering and embezzlement.

 

Adair covered ways in which businesses can spot fraud, and protect themselves against unethical employees, and criminals who make a living ripping off hard working businessmen and women.

 

Bevill State Community College provided a room with a computer and overhead projector. Lee’s Family Restaurant provided lunch for the DA’s staff and those attending the class. If you have an idea of a training session for next quarter, please send the suggestion to rick@rickwatsonmedia.com
