Fremont, CA, March 24, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- U.S. Merchant Systems Risk/Anti-Fraud Department has recently implemented several major fraud detection practices. They are currently working in conjunction with local and federal law enforcement agencies and have been successful in bringing many major crime rings to their knees.
Their online application helps weed out fraudulent merchants and prevents them from boarding questionable accounts into their system, thus thwarting the efforts of cyber criminals and thieves. USMS constantly analyzes data and that helps them determine which merchants may be more prone to high-risk account status.
Laura Cassara, Director of Risk & Underwriting at USMS states “We use a broad range of online networking tools for the purpose of sharing information on high risk accounts within the merchant service industry. This enables us to communicate with other processors to make sure that these fraudsters will not be able to accept credit or debit cards via any means”. Cassara continued, “We recently helped the authorities bust two major fraud / ID Theft rings and plan to continue this good work.”
