    Community Bankers Association of Georgia Associate Member FraudXchange Offers a Solution to Help Banks Fight Check Fraud

    February 7, 2024, The Community Bankers Association of Georgia associate member FraudXchange introduces a suite of fraud prevention solutions exclusively for CBA of Georgia members. Georgia banks must be an eligible member of CBA of Georgia to enroll.   

    Though today’s financial landscape is rapidly evolving, checks remain a consistent form of payment. Unfortunately, since the pandemic, the financial institutions across the United States have experienced a significant increase in check fraud, partially due to mail theft. While larger banks may have implemented their own defense mechanisms, community financial institutions have been left vulnerable, lacking the confidence that their existing systems are sufficient. These institutions are desperately seeking a robust and effective solution to safeguard their assets and reputation.

    In response to the check fraud crisis and the frustrations expressed by financial institutions, FraudXchange has developed three solutions to help community banks combat fraud.

    “I have worked with financial institutions for over 30 years,” said FraudXchange founder David Brasfield. “I always try to listen to what frustrates them and understand their pain points and lately the most resounding sentiment recently has been a frustration in preventing and recouping costs associated with check fraud. We are confident that our new suite of fraud solutions will equip them to fight fraud more efficiently.”

    Data recently released from the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network showing that through the end of October 2023, depository institutions had filed more than 440,000 suspicious activity reports pertaining to check fraud, indicated a continued increase in check fraud.

    “Our members have expressed sincere frustration dealing with rapidly increasing fraud. The FraudXchange’s solutions offered exclusively to Community Bankers Association of Georgia member banks provide an option to help our members to fight back,” said John McNair, President & CEO of the Community Bankers Association of Georgia.
