The customer then uses our fully customizable terms to design their ideal weekly, monthly, or pay-in-full plan, and we debit their bank account on the schedule they set. When suppliers get paid immediately and customers choose their terms, everybody wins.

  • Fraud Detection

    Individual consumers aren't the only victims of fraud. Businesses, from large corporations to small “Mom and Pop” stores, are targets for a variety of illegal schemes. No matter whether the con artist uses the mail, the telephone, or the Internet, the best defense against scams is to follow these basic rules.

    Top Tricks In Tech Fraud

    • Unsolicited urgent, late-day orders, marked by overnight delivery requirements and little haggling over price. You know the old adage; "If it seems too good to be true, it probably is".
    • Drop shipments or delivery to high fraud areas of the country. High fraud areas include New York City, Los Angeles area, and Southern Florida.
    • Large quantity drop shipments to residential addresses.
    • Large orders of high-risk products such as RAM, HDD, flash memory, printer cartridges, laptops, any small and easily unloaded items.
    • Use of multiple, sequentially-numbered credit cards.
    • Use of credit cards drawn on foreign banks.

    If you have an order that you feel is suspect, or meets any of these criteria, place a call to the issuing bank of the card to verify the identity of the customer. One quick call can save you thousands. There are no "guaranteed" credit card transactions.

    Know Your Customer

    Identity theft of long standing, seemingly credit worthy businesses is the most common type of fraud. If you're unsure of your customer use these quick, easy steps to verify the business:

    • Check their address and telephone through independent sources such as online telephone directories.
    • Verify the validity of the ship to address.
    • If the purchase order has been emailed to you, verify the validity of the email address that has been used. This is often the quickest, easiest, and most accurate means of preventing fraudulent orders. Many fraud orders are sent using newly created fraudulent email urls — example [email protected] rather than [email protected] A quick WHOIS search of the fraudulent email url will reveal that it has been newly created and not registered to the company that they are claiming to be.
    • Verify they are licensed to do business in the state they are located. Virtually every state in the country offers a searchable, online database of business records. Many include searches by principal as well.
    • Always obtain a credit application that includes an authorization to check the personal credit of the business principal, especially when dealing with sole-proprietors. Personal credit information may be one of the best ways to identify the character of the customer.
    • If your budget allows, and the size of the potential relationship justifies, employ an online investigative service that specializes in both business and principal information. Used commonly for years in the private investigator business, these services provide a wealth of information in one, convenient stop.
    • If, even after following the above steps, you are still unsure of the validity of your order, always feel free to locate the business' website and call the main contact number provided to verify the order.

    To keep your business safe from fraud, you must develop and maintain fail-safe business policies, particularly when accepting new customer orders, and adhere to those strict guidelines even in the face of that 'killer order'. By being aware that fraud is possible and by following these simple rules, you'll not only protect your business, you protect yourself.
