An unfortunate reality in today’s retail world is the growing increase in fraud. In the rapidly changing wireless industry, new phones, new commission plans, new discounts and bundles, the potential for fraud in a wireless store is huge. Fraud, of course, isn’t just lost or stolen items – we’ll also look at things like commission fraud, for example. In this session, we’ll examine industry stats, RQ4 client stats and identify things we’ve seen – and how you can prevent and monitor these things. Every lost or stolen item counts, and knowing what to look for operationally will affect your bottom line.
