Fraud Caught in Biloxi – Fake Checks/0 Comments/in Industry News /by IDscan.net
In Biloxi, Mississippi, police reported that a man tried to cash fake checks using a fake ID.
At the Boomtown Casino in Biloxi, Andrew Clay Sims was caught attempting to cash two fake checks within the same hour. By using a fake ID, he attempted to commit check fraud and cash each check.
Senior Vice President of Gaming Operations at the Hard Rock Casino said the following: “The employees are our best defense against it. We teach them to use their senses to feel and to look. Then we have all the other devices we can check. We have the pens, the lights, things like that, or electronics with anti-counterfeiting detection devices on them.” Although the staff try its best to catch the fake IDs, some fakes still slip through the cracks.
Along with the check fraud at the Boomtown Casino, a local Gulfport bank experienced check fraud as well. Gulfport police arrested a woman, Valerie Marie Halton, on account of uttering forgery. She attempted to deposit a fake check into her account for over $68,000 at Gulf Coast Community Federal Credit Union. When the bank management discovered the check was fake, they contacted police, and a warrant was put out for her arrest.

How Do I Protect my Nightclub from Chargebacks?/1 Comment/in Press Release, Product Announcement /by IDscan.net
You’ve experienced it before. A customer comes to your nightclub, spends a lot of money, and a week later issues a chargeback through their credit card company. This phenomenon is a result of something called “buyer’s remorse”, and it affects thousands of clubs all over the country on a weekly basis.
Chargebacks directly hurt your business’s bottom line and lead to a significant loss on your books. With chargebacks becoming a frequent occurrence in the nightclub industry, how do we protect ourselves from these costly transactions?
Here at IDFalcon, we developed a fully integrated system that helps you keep track of visitors and prove that they were on your premises. We integrated ID scanning, image capture, fingerprinting, and electronic signature into a system that is still easy-to-use, fast and efficient, and most importantly, effective.
Crazy Horse III in Las Vegas found VeriScan Plus and the M-280 scanner to have an immediate impact on their club’s operations. By utilizing it at the VIP section of their club, Crazy Horse III is able to quickly capture all of the customer’s credentials and information to protect themselves from fraud and chargebacks. The system is also fast and efficient, which allowed them to still deliver an extremely high level of customer service and an excellent customer experience.
Many of our customers have championed that the major benefit of VeriScan Plus and the M-280 is the ability to capture three forms of identification in fewer than 5 seconds – customer information (name, age, gender, address, etc.), a picture of the person, and an image of their driver’s license and credit card. We also integrated fingerprinting and electronic signature as an additional level of security to guarantee that customers cannot issue a chargeback.
Chargebacks are costly, but they don’t have to hurt your club. With our new system, chargebacks are a thing of the past. Stop “buyer’s remorse” and start fighting chargebacks.
