    Globally, fraud is a serious threat. The most common fraud involves sending a fake invoice through email. Lately, there have been reports of such crime involving staff, and they do this by getting around the paper-based system that most businesses use. Having a spending control measure, such as someone igned to approve or reject purchase requests, rarely works unless it is completely transparent. Rubberstamp.io is designed to make every single purchase transparent and gives you total control over which purchase requests to reject or approve. s: goo.gl/QkYUIk
