In honor of International Fraud Awareness Week, Linda Webb, fraud expert and President of Contego Services Group, LLC held an informational session with TriGen Insurance Solutions, Inc. on November 13, 2012 for children at Kids In Distress. Kids In Distress of Broward and Palm Beach Counties is a licensed nationally accredited agency working for prevention of child abuse, preservation of the family, and care and treatment of abused and neglected children. Webb, also known as the Fraud Dog, was honored to speak to children with her dog, Buster the fraud fighting dog, a Boxer breed, in tow. Children of all ages were thrilled to interact with Buster while Webb rallied the crowd in the fight against fraud. Webb’s main focus for the event was to reiterate to children that if they see something or hear something that they know is not right, to tell an adult right away. Webb closed the event by swearing-in all the children as fraud fighters with a fraud dog badge and allowing all the children the opportunity to take their picture with Buster.
Webb showed videos to the children about her anti-bullying campaign, as well as, as a video regarding emails and text messages that target children. As International Fraud Awareness Week comes to a close on November 17, 2012, Webb sends a strong message that through education at all levels; fraud can become a mechanism of the past. Through education and awareness, the public can arm themselves in the fight against fraud.
“It was such an honor to have spoken at Kids in Distress. What this organization is doing for the community is heartwarming and I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to give back to such a wonderful organization. I was thrilled to be able to educate our youth about the importance of reporting fraud and instill in young children the significance of doing the right thing,” said Linda Webb.
