Announcing Thomson Reuters’ sponsorship of International Fraud Awareness Week

International Fraud Awareness Week
November  11-17, 2012

Fraud comes in many forms such as healthcare, insurance, corporate, and money laundering and is a growing concern for corporations, government, and citizens who feel its widespread effects. Thomson Reuters supports International Fraud Awareness Week which is organized by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE).  We hope this initiative brings the topic to the forefront of media and helps to educate on how to prevent and deter fraud.  Please stop by daily online during the week of November 11-17 to learn more about fraud and how bringing together industry experts will help raise awareness to prevent and fight fraud.
