But of course, you and your business can reap all the benefits of associating with a third party when you have performed proper due diligence and found out that the third party is compliant to various rules and regulations and is worth the association. Lack of this compliance due diligence may put you and your company at the risk of fraud whose wrath will be suffered by you, your reputation and your business.
