ForAccess.com is pleased to announce the addition of Rita Patel to its Advisory Board. Patel brings her insight about commercial lending and banking to the group.
“ForAccess.com offers consumers a way to confidentially search for and verify a professional’s license. I know, that as a consumer, it is hard to feel comfortable with the information on the Internet. ForAccess is a site where consumers can trust the information they find,” stated Patel.
As a banking specialist, Patel is familiar with online scams and knows how devastating it is for consumers who fall victim to fraudulent activities. “Victims of these scams start second guessing themselves,” said Patel. “A few years ago, some fraudulent emails went out to our bank customers. The emails all looked very official, and they requested that the customers verify their account information and pin number. We had several customers who trusted that these emails were real and responded to them. Fortunately, we were able to cover their losses, but these consumers felt violated,” continued Patel.
As a member of the ForAccess Advisory Board, Patel hopes to help the group by focusing on the banking and financial issues that concern consumers and professionals. “My experience in the banking industry will hopefully prove helpful to members needing insight into the changes occurring in financing and crediting,” said Patel.
Jeanne Fuller, President of ForAccess.com, said, “We’re excited to have Rita join our group. She is an exceptional professional with a heart for helping customers. Her background in real estate and commercial lending will be an asset to our members.”
