Scrivener Article on Fraud

As March was recently recognized a Fraud Prevention month by a number of organizations; I wrote an article for the Society of Notaries Public of British Columbia’s  Scrivener Magazine on the topic of Fraud.  I talk about an experience I had with a series of forged cheques in my trust account.  No losses every occurred for myself or any of my clients.  The bank or the bank’s insurers ultimately covered what amounted to about $50,000 made up of 6 fraudulent cheques.  Here is a link to the story and the magazine; on page 68.
