Fraud Prevention Rules and Measures
GetFinancing provides a fully electronic and paperless credit application process to consumers shopping
online and brick and mortar points of sale. This frictionless process increases traffic conversions for
its participating merchants and is ideal for e-commerce. Due to its electronic nature, and despite a very
sophisticated fraud prevention software, this process is subject to be targeted by cyber criminals. For
this reason we require all merchants to enforce the below posted criteria:
- The shipping address of the customer on the merchant Order Management System MUST match the address
posted on the GetFinancing portal.
- Once the transaction has been approved, it is strictly forbidden to change or modify the shipping
address without written permission from the Lender even if the customer calls to make that request.
- The participating merchant must assure that the shipping company(ies), that will fulfill the delivery
of the item(s) financed through GetFinancing, do not allow customers to reroute the package to a different
destination, or allow for pick up at a drop off location.
- Brick and mortar merchants (face-to-face transactions) are required to verify the identity of the consumer by validating that their government issued photo ID matches that of the person purchasing/financing the item. A copy of the ID must be kept on file for the duration of the term of the loan/lease.
Please note that failing to comply with these rules will be cause for termination of your GetFinancing
merchant account and will/could result in:
- Lender charging-back the full amount funded on the loan/lease;
- Termination of your GetFinancing merchant account;
- The deactivation of your account(s) with all affiliated GetFinancing lenders.
