Detecting and Preventing Credit Card Fraud Before It Happens

To afford you continued shopping convenience and ensure the ongoing health of our business we screen all Internet orders using an in-house fraud detection system. This helps detect high risk transactions and prevent credit card fraud before it happens-with negligible impact on legitimate purchases. Using this protocol we are able to identify high risk transactions and decide in a fair and timely way whether or not to continue processing the order. This service helps to protect you from unauthorized use of your payment information.

Sometimes your order information is compared with data from a trusted service to identify potential misuse of credit card information and high risk orders. For example greater scrutiny may be required if the billing and shipping address do not match. Such an order could be a legitimate gift purchase, but it could also be symptomatic of a fraudulent order. For your protection as well as ours, we initiate cardholder verification calls when the order appears to have a higher level of risk. respects the confidentiality of your personal information and privacy of your shopping experience. Your personal information will be made available only to those directly involved in the transaction of your order and specifically for the purpose of order management and payment protection.
