'Tis the Season for Fraud

'Tis the Season for Fraud

Take action to prevent check fraud by purchasing your thumbprint pads today! 

From Thanksgiving to New Year's, people are busy with the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, causing many of us to forget simple security measures.  We must keep in mind that check fraud increases over the holiday season, affecting financial institutions and retailers throughout the nation.

According to the 2014 AFP Payments Fraud and Control Survey, findings show:

·         Checks remain the payment type most vulnerable to fraud attacks.

·         82% of organizations affected by payments fraud report that checks were targeted.

·         Among organizations suffering a financial loss due to payments fraud, the typical loss was $23,100.

We want to help you prevent fraud this holiday season by offering a simple and cost effective solution. Our Thumbprint Signature Program works as a natural deterrent.

How does it work?

The program is very simple. Any individual (non-customer) who wishes to cash a check at a participating financial institution or retailer is asked to apply their right thumb to an inkless touch pad fingerprinting device that leaves no ink stain or residue. If fraudulent activity does occur, law enforcement agencies will have the thumbprint as evidence to use in apprehending those responsible.
