The Ohio Credit Union League has joined the Ohio Bankers League and Ohio Attorney General Jim Petro as a participant in the multi-state FinCrime Network, an Internet-based alert and database system that helps financial institutions and law enforcement agencies share information, prevent financial crimes and catch criminals.

FinCrime functions as a clearinghouse of information where authorized participants use their Web browsers to submit fraud data into a central repository. FinCrime allows users to search the database to find fraud incidents in common with their own cases. All users must be authenticated and approved by the network administrator or one of the sponsoring associations. Key Features of FinCrime include: Free registration for financial institutions and law enforcement personnel; Automatic notifications regarding incidents within a users defined areas of interest or regions; A fully searchable database on any given criteria including name, date, region, or type of fraud; E-mail links to the individual who posted an incidents information; and, Automatic checking and notification of new incident entries that cross references with an existing entry. The Ohio Credit Union League, with offices in Dublin, Ohio, is a state trade association representing nearly 500 credit unions. Credit unions are not-for-profit financial institutions owned and democratically controlled by their members/owners. Ohio credit unions are cooperatives and provide savings, loans, and other consumer financial services to their nearly 3 million members/owners. To learn more, visit .
