Announcing the First Fraud Week Twitter Chat

Please join us on Tuesday, November 14, at 11 a.m. CST to participate in our first ever Fraud Week Twitter chat. Our topic is “You discovered fraud — now what?” We’re inviting participants to share their best tips and methods for handling a fraud once it’s discovered.

Since this is our first Twitter chat, let’s go over some Twitter chat basics. Up first…

What is a Twitter Chat?

A Twitter chat is simply an informal but informational hour-long conversation hosted on Twitter. The host — that’s us — sets up a predetermined time and topic, and each participant uses a designated hashtag to join in the chat. To join our chat, here are the details you should know.

Time: Tuesday, November 14 at 11 a.m. CST
Topic: You discovered fraud — now what?
Hashtag: #fraudweekchat

How does it work?

We will open up the chat with an “Introduce Yourself” round where we’ll ask everyone to let us know who you are, where you’re joining from and your reason for participating in the chat.

After that, every few minutes we’ll send out numbered questions with Q1, Q2, Q3, etc. on them.

If you’d like to respond to a question, include A1, A2, A3, etc. and the #fraudweekchat hashtag so other participants can easily follow along with what question you are answering.

Who can join?

Anyone! The chat is open for anyone and everyone. Whether you are a consumer who’s been affected by fraud or a CFE with many years of fraud-fighting experience, we welcome you. All you have to do is use the #fraudweekchat hashtag, and that will let everyone know you’re in the chat. While we know this time may not work out for all who wish to participate, we’ve tried to select a time that would allow as many people to join as possible.

Why join the chat?

This is a chance to network with some of the world’s leading anti-fraud professionals while also learning valuable information about how to handle fraud once it’s been discovered. Just like meeting new and interesting colleagues at an in-person conference, Twitter chats help bring people together who have a shared interest. In this case, our shared interest is fighting fraud and spreading anti-fraud awareness.

I want to join. What do I do now?

First, make sure you are following us on Twitter. Then mark this date and time on your calendar so you don’t miss it. Last, share this post on social media or email it to a friend who you think might enjoy participating. The more people who join in, the richer and more beneficial our conversation will be.

We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday, November 14, at 11 a.m. in our first ever Fraud Week Twitter chat!
