Vigilance Leads to Restaurant Fraud Prevention and Increased Compliance
Implement Accurate Procedures to Increase Restaurant Fraud Prevention
All restaurants, whether fine dining, casual or quick service locations face issues of restaurant fraud when conducting daily business. Many of these establishments invite fraudulent activity with darkened environments or unusual lighting conditions which make visual inspection of payment methods and identity sources difficult to verify. Quick service restaurants lend themselves to payment–related fraud due to fast–paced check–out counters, a transient customer base, a large quantity of low–dollar transactions and low levels of experienced cashiers.
Because of the high costs of fraud, the restaurant industry is obligated to implement restaurant fraud prevention controls designed to help reduce the risk of fraud. Regardless of service type, restaurants rely on ID’s, cash and credit cards; additionally, due to increasing legal requirements, the industry must also find cost effective and non–intrusive methods of ensuring customer identity. It is vital now more than ever to verify not only the age of patrons, but also the authenticity of ID’s, cash, credit cards and checks in order to prevent restaurant fraud from occurring in the first place.
