Annotation: INTENDED FOR THE TRAINING OF BANK PERSONNEL, THIS FILM ILLUSTRATES THE TYPES OF CHECK AND CURRENCY FRAUD PERPETRATED BY CUSTOMERS IN THE DAILY COURSE OF BANK TRANSACTIONS AND HOW EMPLOYEES CAN DETECT SWINDLERS.
Abstract: THE FILM CONSISTS OF A SERIES OF ABOUT 20 VIGNETTES THAT TYPIFY THE CONSUMER ENCOUNTERS EXPERIENCED EVERY DAY BY BANK TELLERS AND NEW-ACCOUNTS PERSONNEL IN BANKS, SAVINGS AND LOAN ASSOCIATIONS, AND CREDIT UNIONS. THE DETECTION OF FALSIFIED FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS IS ILLUSTRATED FOR ALTERED OR COUNTERFEIT CURRENCY AND GOVERNMENT SECURITIES, AND STOLEN OR FORGED PERSONAL AND GOVERNMENT CHECKS, AS WELL AS FOR FALSIFIED IDENTIFICATION. THE EMPLOYEE ATTITUDES EMPHASIZED AS IMPORTANT IN CRIME PREVENTION ARE AWARENESS AND VIGILANCE TOGETHER WITH A POLITE BUT FIRM ABIDANCE BY THE INSTITUTION'S PROCEDURAL SAFEGUARDS AGAINST FRAUD. OVERALL, THE FILM POINTS OUT THAT CUSTOMERS PLANNING TO COMMIT FRAUD CAN BE FRUSTRATED IN THEIR INTENTIONS THROUGH USE OF CONSCIENTIOUS, INFORMED EMPLOYER PROCEDURES. (MRK)
