Fraud-Net.com’s over 1,000 financial institutions log in to report fraud or to get reports via e-mail or looking at the site, the association said. Florida banks lose roughly $100 million to fraud each year, according to published media reports. The association said financial institutions like using the site because it streamlines sharing information about fraud, a process that used to be cumbersome and time consuming.
