When the Fraud is Stamped: Prevention, Enforcement, and Recovery for Victims of Mail and Lottery Fraud

October 22, 2014 1:00 PM - October 22, 2014 2:30 PM

If you’ve advocated for a victim of a financial fraud, especially lottery fraud, there is a good chance that the fraudster used the mail in committing the crime. The US Postal Inspection Service has multiple resources to assist victims of fraud, including lottery fraud. Clayton Gerber, Postal Inspector, and Kate Lawrence will share prevention and outreach resources, enforcement options, and provide important information on how consumers can respond to fraud in the mail, with a particular emphasis on lottery fraud. 

By the close of the webinar, you’ll better understand how the USPIS can assist victims of fraud, and you’ll learn the tactics fraud operators use and the particular vulnerabilities for victims of mass-marketing crimes. This better understanding of how these crimes work will assist anyone called upon to respond to reports of victimization, whether that’s local police or social services.
