Jeff Lane, fraud specialist at Tanner De Witt today gave a talk held at the Canadian Chamber of Commerce to in-house counsel members of HKCCA, Hong Kong’s only non-profit association of in-house counsel run for in-house counsel by in-house counsel (Hong Kong Corporate Counsel Association).

Jeff’s talks covered important aspects of fast growing internet fraud including the three R’s: Recognition/Reaction/Resolution.

Topic Overview

In the last 10 years internet fraud has become a feature of everyday business practice.  The bare faced cheek of the confidential trickster of yesteryear has now been replaced with the insidious skills of the boiler house fraud, internet identify theft and CEO fraud.  The purpose of this discussion will be to help you to identify circumstances in which such fraud may arise, the appropriate way in which to respond and should it be necessary, how, as a victim, to initiate to effect a meaningful recovery strategy.
