CHECKED 2024 summit

September 10 - 11  | Charlotte, NC

You're invited to CHECKED 2024, 
a Mitek fraud event

Coming in only...

In 2023, the United States saw $21 billion in check fraud losses, almost 80% of all check fraud losses globally. And it's not slowing down. Fraudsters are sharing tactics and using the latest technologies to commit these crimes, making it hard for financial institutions to keep up.

Join your peers, industry experts, and Mitek leaders for our third annual CHECKED Summit, where we'll discuss the current and future state of check fraud. This is a unique opportunity to connect with other financial institutions to share best practices and strategies, and work together to defend against this growing problem of check fraud.
