fraud and theft prevention network
PERG's Fraud and Theft Prevention Network works! It is helping our members sidestep criminals.
Using the Questionable Customer Alert, one of our members posted a New Customer Inquiry and within 15 minutes received confirmation from another member company overseas that the potential customer was suspected of being a criminal who had hit at least half a dozen rental houses around the world. The police were waiting at the rental house when the renters arrived. Within a two-week span FOUR other companies were hit by the same criminals and were not so fortunate.

Please be sure your staff knows about and uses these alerts. To add names to our distribution list please contact . Your involvement helps strengthen the network!
