Business fraud that targets payroll employees

This scam has been making the rounds in recent months, and it’s important for potential victims to be on high alert.

What is double check fraud?

When you hear the term "double check" fraud, you may think it sounds like something that is examined twice.

When two business partners in Nevada are facing a parting of ways, getting out of the agreement without losing everything may be challenging.

One of the factors that will affect how much each partner is entitled to may be the contributions each made to the company, and this does not necessarily mean how much capital each invested.
