All About Unauthorized Transactions

It’s not easy to run a company and avoid fraud. Yes, people from all over the world will try to cheat a company out of money. This is especially true when one runs a company on the Internet with their website. This is so hard to avoid that business owners simply put this into their projections. That is to say, people prepare for fraud as they except it to happen all the time. With this in mind, here is a short guide explaining unauthorized transactions.

Part of something bigger; First and foremost, when looking at the situation, one will realize that they are not dealing with teenage kids who stole a credit card. While that is a small part of it, it’s not nearly the biggest issue one will have to deal with as organize crime now uses credit card transactions to bilk people out of money. Remember, merchant accounts can only do so much, especially when up against well-funded criminal organizations that have time and resources to take advantage of smaller players in the e-commerce field.

A lot of it is overseas: When looking at fraud, most of it does not come from the United States. In fact, a lot of it comes from Russia, the Middle East and South America. While not surprising, some people do not realize that fraud comes from all over the globe. This is scary as one will have to watch out for transactions coming from these regions. Not only that, it’s hard to verify this information if a person is in a foreign country.

Security only goes so far: Finally, when trying to prevent fraud, a corporation can only go so far in its efforts., since there are a lot of hardworking people on both sides, it is a big game of cat and mouse. However, a merchant account owner can do more to ensure that credit card processing is both safe and free of errors. Simply put, when using some level of security, one can avoid most problems as only the worst sites are taken down or exploited by people who want to commit credit card fraud.

Unauthorized transactions are a big deal, and a company owner must work hard to prevent them. Otherwise, when allowing them to occur often, a company owner will lose money and time. Luckily, with a little bit of hard work, one can avoid most issues and protect their e-commerce site.



It took me a while to decide who I wanted to settle with to handle all of my credit card transactions because every company wants to make it sound like they're offering you the best rates. was able compare and beat all of the other offers I received. They were also able to provide me the fairest price on my EMV-compliant terminal. My sales representative and the support team were there to assist every step of the way. Ultimately, I'm looking forward to a long term relationship with this company.

The service was very professional, my sales person (Steven B.) was very well versed in the product and most helpful in getting our company set up to accept credit cards via my cell phone. Their rates are some of the lowest on the market and their service is unparalleled. I will recommend them to anyone requiring a credit card processing service.

I called indecisive about getting a device, but speaking to your Sales Consultant completely settled me. He was very professional, knowledgeable and patiently walked me through the process. He always responded to my voicemails and answered all my questions. After I received my merchandise, he called following up to ensure that I had received it. Customer service I would say is 5 stars. Stellar! Thanks Credit Card Processing, I will definitely recommend you.
