Nightclubs and bars face issues of counterfeit fraud and regulatory compliance specific to their industry as they conduct their daily business. Many of these establishments have payment processing environments that invite fraudulent activity with darkened environments or unusual lighting conditions which make visual inspection of payment methods and identification documents difficult to verify.
Payment fraud such as counterfeit money, fraudulent coupons or stolen/counterfeit credit cards is the more prevalent type of fraud in this sector of the hospitality industry more so than identity fraud. However, it is important to note that ID verification is a particularly important issue for entities that rely on alcohol and tobacco sales and gambling participation. Failure to address fraud not only impacts the bottom line, but lends itself to the potential levy of fines, legal actions and/or license forfeitures that could destroy the business.
