Your BBB is proud to offer its Accredited Businesses anti-fraud training, developed by Whitlock Training Group Corporation. This innovative online training will give your businesses the resources needed to spot fake credit cards, cash, checks, traveler’s checks and IDs. Two courses in Avoiding Bad Transactions are being offered at discounted prices just for you.
The average merchant loses $1,700 per employee each year to fraud. Criminals are currently targeting businesses, scamming them with fake credit cards and more. It’s easy, too easy. While security guards and clerks keep an eye out for shoplifters or those who dine-and-dash without paying, no one is giving attention to whether a credit card is real or a $20 bill is bogus. The reality is employees have not been trained to recognize the difference between genuine and fake forms of payment and identification. When employees can’t spot the fakes businesses don’t just lose out on the sale, they get hit with costly credit card fees, penalties and chargebacks.
Now clerks, cashiers, managers – anyone who handles transactions – can learn to easily spot fakes thanks to this innovative training. “Employees will be able to apply this knowledge in just seconds,” said Mike Rausch, President of Whitlock Training Group Corporation. “No delays at the checkout and no angry customers. In fact, in most cases, customers won’t even notice their payment or ID is being checked.”
“Avoiding Bad Transactions combines high-quality graphics, animation, video, narration and skill lessons to create an interactive learning experience. It’s informative and it’s fun to take!” said Angie Barnett, President and CEO of BBB | Greater MD. “Any BBB Accredited Business that processes payments can benefit from the two courses offered. Both give dynamic training for spotting fake IDs and payment. Managers, in addition, get valuable training on the transactions process that will benefit the bottom-line.”
