FinCap Friday: Fraud Attacks on Payment Apps

In 2022, politicians began requesting data from peer-to-peer payment apps and banks who own payment services, like Zelle. Scams on these platforms are on the rise and now the question is: Should regulation be on the rise too? Tune in here as Yanely and Tim discuss this type of fraud on a deeper level, and be sure to share this week's episode of FinCap Friday with your students, too!

If you're short on time for this activity, try our simplified No Tech version, containing embedded questions right in the slide deck!

Check out all our FinCap Friday episodes here. They're not date-dependent so many of the 175+ in our catalog dating back to August 2018 may work throughout the coming year!
