Has your bank or credit union received suspicious SBA CARES Act funds in customer accounts? Has your agency received complaints from community members that their ID was stolen and used to obtain COVID relief funds? In this course, we will discuss the explosion in COVID-19 relief fraud related to the SBA’s Payroll Protection Program (PPP) and Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) programs.
