Identity Theft

Protect Your Customers from Identity Theft

Many merchants and businesses don’t realize how easily criminals can obtain their customers’ personal information and financial data. Criminals engage in several creative methods to extort sensitive data: “shoulder surfing”, ease-dropping, dumpster-diving, Internet hacking, and old-fashioned theft. Even areas in and around your office or place of business are preying grounds for identity thieves.

With the growing popularity of e-commerce, merchants and businesses have more customer information at their fingertips than ever before. Which, to no one’s surprise, has made the Internet an appealing place for identity thieves to obtain identifying data, such as passwords or banking information. Identity thieves target businesses that conduct significant business online – processing and shipping orders through online sales.

With enough identifying information about an individual, a criminal can completely assume an individual’s identity to conduct a wide range of crimes: false applications for loans and credit cards, fraudulent bank account withdrawals, fraudulent use of telephone credit cards, and purchasing online and offline goods and services in a shopping spree. If the criminal takes steps to ensure that the bills are sent to the victim, they may not become aware of what happened until significant damage has been done to their assets, reputation, credit, and financial standing.

When someone’s identity is stolen, the e-commerce business who was involved with the transaction absorb a percentage of the blame and costs. Most businesses who are vulnerable to identity thieves use credit card processing services that don’t ensure fool-proof security while processing payments. As a business operating e-commerce, what can you do to maintain the best security possible for your customers?
