In a time when identity theft and fraud is getting ever more prevalent and the criminals getting more sophisticated, it’s crucial that we as a supplier do all we can to help the police stamp out these crimes.
That’s why we have been signed up to Project Genesius for a number of years now, they work in partnership with the Met Police. Any transactions that we receive that do not come from a legitimate business or do not look genuine are cancelled and reported to the team at Project Genesius who may also involve other external organisations including Interpol. We have a duty to report any suspicious activity, not only that, we are at risk of being sued or even imprisoned if we do supply anyone who we can’t be sure is using the equipment for a legitimate purpose.
This year alone we have cancelled over £20,000 worth of potentially fraudulent orders!

Today we take a closer look at the bus pass solution we provide for one of the largest local authorities in the country.
