Hi friends- I’ve been “out of pocket” for a few hours by spending some time in a class put on by our local Sheriff’s department here in Johnson County. In fact, the Johnson County department is the largest law enforcement department in the State of Kansas and they know their stuff!
I was really interested in this class because it pertained to a topic that we dread but unfortunately have to deal with here at Mission Repair- Internet Fraud.
According to law enforcement officials, there are several types of Internet Fraud including Auction Fraud, Non-Delivery of Merchandise, Investment Fraud, Business Fraud or one of the most infamous in recent history; Nigerian Letter or “419” Fraud.
Here are some tips for avoiding credit card fraud as it pertains to consumers:
While some of these tips may seem like basic knowledge to some, I was surprised to hear about the number of new questions that came up reminds me to not take Internet Security for granted. For us law abiding citizens, it’s a real threat and inconvenience to have our identity stolen.
Mission Repair does not tolerate credit card fraud, and all fraud, without exception, will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. In addition, we will pursue civil legal action seeking any loss of income related to the fraud, including business, legal fees, research costs, employee down time and loss of revenues. We log IP strings on all orders – any orders coming back as a “charge back” due to fraudulent activities will be diligently pursued through the suspect’s local jurisdiction for prosecution to the fullest extent of the law.
We can all do our part to keep fraud at bay. We’re doing our part at Mission Repair, and we’ll be in the lookout for anyone that’s involved in criminal activity. Be safe, take care…
