Fraud Prevention Statement and Policy
We take fraud and fraud prevention very seriously!
Internet and online sales have grown approximately 20% annually since the year 2000. Unfortunately, online and ecommerce fraud has followed this growth pattern. According to a variety of reports, in 2008 online credit card fraud cost merchants nearly 4 billion dollars in losses.
This is a cost we all pay as a society. Based on the type of products we sell and the high dollar value of many of our orders BarcodeSpot.com is and recognizes it's susceptibility to credit card fraud and we do everything in our power to prevent this.
We utilize a state of the art fraud detection and grading scheme that includes internal detection systems as well as outside third party tools to protect our customers and ourselves. Every order processed through our online cart system must score below a certain fraud detection threshold. Orders that score higher than this threshold are flagged as potentially fraudulent and may be delayed as we investigate. We use a variety of methods to investigate potentially fraudulent charges and orders that may require contacting the customer, contacting the card issuing bank and verifying identity. We are not responsible for delays in shipping due to orders with high risk fraudulent attributes.
Please note: Orders shipping to an address other than the billing address may be delayed. If you have any questions please contact our customer service department at (888) 330-2633.
All fraudulent purchase attempts are immediately reported to the issuing bank, the FBI and BarcodeSpot.com will cooperate fully with all law enforcement agencies to prosecute fraud.
