"Everyone benefits when small businesses thrive!"

It is very possible that a small business can fail because of fraud, and I believe this harmful, and sometimes embarassing, type of crime should not go unchallenged. This is why I support Love Business, Hate Fraud.

A recent survey found that 44% of SMEs and 49% of all businesses agreed that fraud was a major risk to growth over the next couple of years. Of those businesses that had experienced fraud in the past two years, 18% said it was the most disruptive, ahead of cybercrime, physical burglary and other crimes like assault.

A combined 41% said a lack of understanding and the cost of taking action were the biggest barriers to tackling fraud. As it is the most common crime, long-term economic growth could be hurt if it isn't tackled immediately.

I urge anyone who cares about small businesses to support the Love Business, Hate Fraud campaign.

Until next time ...
