Fraud Prevention Resources


If you have spent any length of time accepting credit card payments, chances are that you have come across a fraudulent transaction or two. Fraud victimizes everyone involved in the credit card process: the consumer whose card information is stolen, the merchant whose product is purchased, the processing bank that facilitates the transaction and the issuer who is charged with protecting its cardholders, to say nothing of Visa and MasterCard who spend millions developing products to help prevent it from happening.


The resources on this page will help you understand credit card processing risk and will suggest ways to mitigate it. The articles below will teach you how to build an effective fraud prevention system, to identify weak spots in it and take actions to correct them.
