New fraud training video available from OBA

The number of bank robberies in Oklahoma, as well as nationwide, has remained consistently low for the past few years. It is still critically important, however, our banks train for the “when” and not “if” as the safety of all our bankers and customers is a primary goal.

The OBA has created an updated training video via Zoom, which features OBA fraud expert Elaine Dodd to help in that endeavor. It is similar to those provided by us just over a year ago and now includes what we have seen in our state in the recent past. The training is just over a half hour, which allows you to use it in a group and then open a discussion of your bank’s specific procedures or as a stand-alone for your staff. It is also a good tool for on-boarding employees new to banking.

The video link is available for all our member banks by requesting the link from Elaine Dodd at

This is a part of OBA’s effort to help you all to “stay safe out there”!
