Business fraud is on the rise

Fraud Prevention

At Northern Bank, protecting you and your business from fraudulent activity is a top priority. That’s why we strongly encourage everyone – especially small business owners – to download our quick guide to preventing fraud.

To better protect small businesses, Northern Bank only allows business owners to authorize the following:

  • Wire transfer limit increase
  • Credit Increase or ACH (aka Direct Deposit)
  • Direct Pay
  • Electronic Check

We’ve also compiled a few measures small business owners can take to protect their business:

  • Limit who can authorize certain electronic transfers, wires, change of address, phone number and authorized signers on the bank account.
  • Beware of Business Email Compromise (BEC). These are fake email messages that appear to come from a real bank or vendor (often the result of hacking).
  • Never change financial information – such as payments – based on an email from a bank or vendor. Always call the bank or vendor to confirm changes.
