The lodging industry includes many types of properties from small "single property" motels to large hotels that are one of many properties belonging to a common owner. Each hotel, big or small, is facing numerous fraud risks that contribute to the $221 billion in fraud losses worldwide. Failure to address these challenges head on will impact the bottom line and can lend itself to the potential levy of fines, legal actions and/or license forfeitures that could destroy the business.
Managers of hotels naturally would rather spend most of their time meeting and greeting guests than authorizing identification or payment types. However, hotels, motels and bed & breakfast locations rely on ID and credit cards to keep their industry moving, and with the high costs of fraud, the industry must act now to verify not only the age of customers but also the authenticity of ID’s, cash, credit cards and checks to prevent theft.
