Houston, TX (PRWEB) March 25, 2014
HomeValue.us.org is starting a major new technological initiative to make it harder for scam artists to use stolen credit cards on their site, the company announced yesterday.
“The theft of credit card data is an ongoing online scam,” a HomeValue.us.org spokesman said. “It's something that all sites should worry about, even if some do not take it that seriously. The good news is that software that can prevent this type of scam is getting better and better, and we believe our new software is up to the job of scam-busting on our site.”
When someone gets hold of stolen credit card information, the first thing they usually do is test out the numbers on a low-cost site like HomeValue.us.org, he said.
“They want to make sure the card works before they buy high value items,” he said. “So they pick an inexpensive site and try to make a purchase to see what happens. Often if the card is rejected on that site, they don't even bother trying to use it on other sites.”
The software is built so that it can recognize the patterns and red flags of people who are using stolen credit card information and then automatically block them, he said.
“It works in a matter of seconds and rejects cards that are likely to have been stolen,” he said. “It makes consumers much, much safer in the long term.”
