Attention, fraud fighters! To celebrate the 30th Annual ACFE Global Fraud Conference, we invite you to join us and Forensic Strategic Solutions (FSS) for an upcoming Twitter chat. Our topic is “30 Years of Fighting Fraud.” We’ll discuss how the anti-fraud profession has evolved over the past 30 years and how fraud fighters have stepped up during that time. We hope to see you there with your own stories and experiences to share.
If this is your first Twitter chat, here are some basic guidelines to help you get the most out of it. Up first…
What is a Twitter chat?
A Twitter chat is an informal, informational, hour-long conversation hosted on Twitter. The hosts — that’s us and FSS — set 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, June 18, at 10:30 a.m. CT
Topic: 30 Years of Fighting Fraud
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 #fraudconfchat hashtag so other participants can easily follow along with what question you are answering.
Follow the conversation by clicking on the hashtag and selecting the “Latest” tab (rather than “Top”).
Who can join?
Anyone! The chat is open to anyone and everyone. Whether you are attending this year’s conference or not and whether you’ve been a fraud fighter for 30 years or 30 minutes, we welcome you. All you have to do is use the #fraudconfchat hashtag to let everyone know you’re in the chat.
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 the anti-fraud profession. Just like meeting new and interesting colleagues at the 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.
What do I do now?
First, make sure you are following the ACFE and FSS 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, June 18, at 10:30 a.m. CT in our upcoming Twitter chat!
