Talent United Masterclass: Fraud threat avoidance | Global Entrepreneurship Week

About the event

Fraud Threat Avoidance Masterclass by Talent United at Barnsley College

A FREE virtual masterclass hosted online by Talent United

Join us online on Thursday 19 November, 9.30am – 11.30am.

It is simply not enough to rely on your bank to stop you falling victim to fraud.

Annually, consumers and businesses are losing almost as much as financial organisations to financial criminals. The main driver of this is the lack of awareness amongst the general population of exactly what fraud looks like and how to spot it.

Presented by Michael Lea-Smith from Virgin Money, this masterclass will provide:

  • A view of the UK’s fraud landscape
  • Real life case studies
  •  The theory of threat avoidance
  • Practical hints and tips to help you protect your personal and professional finances.
