Be vigilant for Corporate Fraud

Corporate fraud is on the rise. Rental and lease companies are seeing corporate customer accounts being used fraudulently to obtain vehicles, which are then stolen.

The BVRLA has been made aware of some cases where members are being targeted by such attacks. Members may wish to consider the following areas of best practice when arranging vehicles for corporate customers:

  • Setup a password with corporate customers to be used when vehicles are being booked
  • Call the corporate customer back on one of their known numbers to confirm any vehicles being booked

Members requiring further guidance in this area – or with best practice they would like to share – should email [email protected].
