Despite the fact that about 20% of small businesses were victims of fraud over the past year, 44% did not report it to the authorities. Why? 

  • Concern about wasting additional time and resources trying to recover losses
  • A lack of awareness as to where to report the fraud
  • A feeling that police can’t help
