The new TLTA Cyber Security Task Force, chaired by David Tandy, was created because of the need to work together as an industry to raise awareness and promote cyber security prevention measures.
One important goal for the Task Force is developing a collection of resources to help TLTA members identify and prevent cyber crime and wire fraud. See below for resources that may help your company and your clients keep their digital information safe.

The CFPB has provided the following instructions
on what to do if you are the victim of wire fraud:
- Contact your bank or the money transfer company immediately upon discovering that funds have been transferred to the wrong account. Ask the bank or money transfer company to attempt a wire recall.
- Contact your local FBI and state Attorney General office.
- File a complaint, regardless of the dollar amount, with the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center at http://www.ic3.gov. Part of the mission of ic3 is to provide the public with a reliable and convenient reporting mechanism to submit information to the FBI concerning suspected Internet-facilitated criminal activity. Information is analyzed and used for investigative and intelligence law enforcement purposes and for public awareness.
- Report the phishing scam to the FTC.
