Even extensive preventive measures and controls cannot, of course, completely prevent abuse and fraudulent acts. However, they can at least make them more difficult. You should therefore take note of the following recommendations: If a business relationship has already existed for a number of years, the trust in the customer naturally also grows. Even in the case of large companies, you assume that payments will be made. After all, nobody wants to lose their reputation. Or the buyer has assured you that a budget has been put in place and you will be paid without any problems. Or your sales team has checked the customer's history elsewhere and is confident that the customer is financially stable.
