Exclusive to IMB members, the fortnightly Confidential Bulletin lists frauds, commercial failures and non-payment of debts. It names and shames those responsible, listing their names, addresses, aliases and any other information that is known or relevant.
Sent to members as a PDF via email, the Bulletin is presented in an easy to absorb short report format. Each issue also contains an editorial addressing a particular concern or new criminal trend.
Accompanying articles explain the activities of fraudsters, referring to and showing where applicable, examples of the documentation they use and the angle they approach victims. When considered necessary, the articles also include warnings and advice on what to do and what to look out for.
The delivery format of the Bulletin allows members to index, store and cross-reference cases for their own use. It also enables organisations to use the information as a means of warning others that may be targeted within the business by a particular approach and need to know what to look out for.
