Retail Fraud Prevention Products


Our references help eliminate retail fraud, whether your retail operation includes check cashing, check acceptance, credit card use, or alcohol control. For more than 50 years, we have published the leading references for control of ID, whether supporting one location or thousands. Our printed Guides offer compact size and portability, and their low cost makes them ideal for protecting multiple counters and service locations. Our online references offer sophisticated ID checking at any location for check cashing and/or credit card fraud detection.

Altered and false IDs pose a large challenge in today’s economy. Car rental concerns, department stores, cellular phone companies, and many other retailers rely upon our resources for quick checks of IDs and retail fraud prevention. Compliance in employee hiring is assisted, too.
