Presentation Overview: Given the feedback from last month’s session with Tom Cronkright, CEO of CertifID, we’ve asked him to come back for our November webinar to share more of his experience and insights around wire fraud and cyber security. Tom has agreed to share the story about his wire fraud experience involving his title company, Sun Title in Grand Rapids, MI. He will describe how he led efforts to recover the stolen funds and experience as a lead witness for the U.S. Department of Justice in a subsequent criminal trial against one of the cyber perpetrators. A detailed discussion of the steps to recover funds should a wire fraud occur will also be covered. This promises to be another great session you will not want to miss.
