Good morning, this is Doug Davis from the Nonprofit, Numismatic Crime Information Center.
Today I would like to introduce you to our new forums section of NCIC. Please take the time to visit our site, check out our forums, and start conversations about the crimes being committed in our industry. Keep up to date on the newest crimes in your area and feel free to post any information you may have pertaining to a particular crime.
Today is the very first day of our new forums, under the Resources drop-down menu on the main page of the website. The following is a direct link to the forums, http://numismaticcrimes.org/ncic-forums/. When you register you will notice there isn’t much activity, so please be one of the first people to start a post so we can make this a place you regularly visit and have discussions! If you have questions, please post a new topic and we will help!
We are also adding a second section related to security and risk assessment.
We want to hear about and have you share the ways you have been protecting yourself, your coin shop, and traveling to and from shows.
