Our chapter hosted a Fraud Behavioral Science Think Tank during June 2019. Several intriguing message and design combinations were identified, but after some spirited deliberations, the Central Ohio ACFE Chapter Board selected the Little White Lies…LEAD TO BIG CONSEQUENCES campaign as the event’s winner. Our chapter then planned and executed a 8 week public awareness campaign through Fraud Awareness Week. Learn more at COSTofFRAUD.com.
