Steve Simmonds, Head of Sales at WIS International commented, “We are very pleased to continue our support of The Fraud Awards for the third year running. We think it’s really important to celebrate those doing outstanding work and really making a difference in the fight against retail crime. Without them, retailers would not be able to stay ahead of the increasing hazards of fraud.”
