The Midsouth Chapter of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners has joined a growing list of organizations making a public commitment to promoting anti-fraud awareness and reducing fraud risk.

We request the public to bring paper items only and if possible put them in a cardboard box or paper sack. The second event will be inside the hotel for an information session on Identity theft from 7:30 to 8:20 PM. There will also be an educational seminar for professionals concerned with fraud prevention starting in the afternoon. Professionals can earn six continuing education credits for attending.
