SAN DIEGO, CA (PRWEB) August 06, 2013
BirthRecords.us.org has updated their payment system with new software designed to make it nearly impossible for scam artists to take advantage of their system, the company announced yesterday.
“One of the main problems with running an online company is avoiding scam artists,” a BirthRecords.us.org spokesman said. “We need to do everything we can to ensure that our company and our customers do not become scam victims.”
Companies like BirthRecords.us.org are targets for scam artists because they charge very little money for their services, he said.
“What happens is that when a scam artist gets a hold of someone's credit card information, they need to buy something small to make sure the card works before they try for a bigger purchase,” the BirthRecords.us.org spokesman said. “So they try our site first – which can damage our reputation, because people end up thinking we are the scam artist ripping them off.”
The new software is capable of figuring out the patterns and red flags that indicate a purchase is probably being made by a scam artist and not a real customer, he said. Then, it blocks the purchase.
“The software is very predictive and very accurate,” he said. “This will not affect our legitimate customers. It will only block people we are reasonably sure are trying to pull a scam.”
The software is now live and has already blocked multiple suspicious transactions, he said.
BirthRecords.us.org was created to give people access to public birth records. It offers consumers an independent source of birth record information from a constantly updated database.
