Fresno, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/11/2016 -- As the founder of a company devoted to protecting consumers from the deleterious effects of fraud in its many forms, Ian Leaf is all too familiar with the level of sophistication of fraudsters and the length they will go to achieve their nefarious ends. In announcing the release of a biography detailing his personal and professional life experiences, Leaf reveals the impetus behind his career choice and how he came to develop his unique and highly effective anti-fraud strategies.
Leaf's new book, which is available for purchase on an immediate basis, is ideally suited for those who wish to prevent being victimized by fraud as well as those interested in learning more about the circumstances surrounding Leaf's entry into the world of tax fraud prevention. With thorough details regarding the many preventive measures employed by his company and personal anecdotes revealing how Leaf himself was victimized by fraudsters, the book provides essential information in a manner that at times can be simultaneously devastating and uplifting.
"In sharing my personal and professional experiences with the effects of fraud, my only goal is to help prevent others from being harmed by the unscrupulous individuals who are so bent on taking advantage of others for their own personal gain," says Leaf. "Because so many of these details had such an impact on me personally, this was quite a difficult book to write, but it ultimately served to reinforce my belief in the importance of my work in fraud prevention."
Leaf, known throughout the industry for his serious and analytical approach to fraud prevention, often works directly with corporations as a consultant on wide-ranging issues related to scams and potentially fraudulent activity. In addition to his consulting work, Leaf has also become a fierce consumer advocate, speaking frequently about how fraudsters operate, who they tend to target and how consumers can protect themselves from being victimized.
"I am immensely proud of the work I have done in the field of consumer advocacy and fraud prevention," says Leaf. "At the same time, however, it would be foolish to think that our work is anywhere close to being complete, as fraudsters continue to evolve and are tireless when it comes to developing new strategies to defraud and deceive others. Progress has been made, but we must remain vigilant in order to continue to prevent fraudsters from succeeding."
