SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (PRWEB) March 22, 2012
Identity Theft 911, the nation’s premier identity management and data risk management services provider, today announced that Client Relations Manager, Gina King, was elected president of the Arizona chapter of the International Association of Financial Crimes Investigators (IAFCI). As leader of the one of the largest IAFCI chapters in the world, King is responsible for overseeing day-to-day chapter operations, chapter meetings, the annual chapter seminar, chapter financials and representing the chapter at the International board meetings.
The win recognizes King's 12 years of active IAFCI involvement and service in both Southern California and Arizona, including two years as chapter secretary and most recently, two years as vice president. King was directly involved with the planning and preparation for the 2009 Annual National Conference held in Phoenix, as well as with the chapter's last two well attended one-day seminars. King has more than 15 years in fraud experience, both as a fraud specialist and fraud manager for TransUnion and Identity Theft 911. She currently maintains relationships with some of Identity Theft 911’s top clients.
The IAFCI is a nonprofit international organization providing services and information about financial fraud, fraud investigation and fraud prevention methods. Having begun in 1968 in response to increasing transaction-card crimes, the association has grown steadily with members now spread across the globe representing law enforcement, banking and retail services.
Financial fraud is growing at a rapid pace, as criminals employ more sophisticated methods to get their hands on valuable credit card and other account information. The FTC's Consumer Sentinel Report states that consumers paid nearly $1.5 billion for fraud complaints in 2011 and that identity theft complaints remain the number one issue for the 14th consecutive year. IAFCI is committed to providing consumers with critical information to help protect themselves from fraud and other financial crimes, employment scams, identity theft, as well as charity, sweepstakes and online auction scams.
“Working with IAFCI has been a real pleasure and is always a fantastic educational and networking experience for all of our member companies and individuals," King said. "There are numerous opportunities to meet fellow professionals, share knowledge and learn together, including the Arizona chapter's recent 2012 Annual Spring Training Seminar on March 8th and the IAFCI's 2012 Training Conference and Exhibitor Show in San Antonio in August. I continue to be grateful to be part of such a wonderful organization."
“On behalf of the IAFCI, we are pleased to welcome Gina King as the 2012 – 2013 Arizona Chapter President.,” said Jimmy Haughran, international president, IAFCI. “This is a volunteer position and we appreciate her continued dedication to the IAFCI and to the Arizona Chapter. Gina has been a member of the Association since 2003 and has supported both the Southern California Chapter and now the Arizona Chapter. We look forward to working with her in her new capacity.
