U.K. Mobile Retailer Chooses Accertify for Online Fraud Prevention

July 1, 2010 

Accertify, a Chicago-based provider of transaction risk screening services, announced it has signed an agreement with The Carphone Warehouse, the U.K.’s largest independent mobile phone retailer.   Accertify will institute enterprise-wide fraud prevention strategies for the U.K.-based mobile dealer, according to a press release. Carphone Warehouse Group plc is in a joint venture with Best Buy Europe Group and has a significant interest in Virgin Mobile France. “Card-not-present fraud is a growing cost for merchants in Europe,” said Andy Lee, European director of professional services for Accertify.  We’re excited to offer a more advanced alternative to the limited solutions offered by payment processors and we’re gratified by the response  Accertify has received in the U.K. since our expansion there earlier this year.”
