To address the ongoing threat of fraud and help mitigate the potentially devastating effects it can have on credit unions, CCUL's Risk Management Resources Department will now host quarterly Fraud Chats. These calls will feature representatives from credit unions and/or local law enforcement agencies. The first two calls will be held March 14 and June 13 at 10:00 am.
Investigator Doug Miller with the NC State Bar will present on cyber/wire fraud prevention on the March call. Before investigating for the NC State Bar, Miller retired as a federal special agent and criminal investigator for the U.S. Treasury Department's Internal Revenue Service. His focus was on drug and money laundering, Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force, BSA cases, tax crimes, DEA-HIDTA cases, and the like. He has 28 years of federal and state criminal investigative experience and is a licensed accountant.
In June, Robert McKone, security and risk manager at Marine Federal Credit Union, will be the guest speaker. McKone has seven years of fraud experience and 13 years of law enforcement experience. He is a certified gang specialist through the NC Gang Investigator's Association and will speak on topics related to gangs and financial crimes.
