Online Security: Gang Operating Sophisticated Credit Card Fraud

Gang operating sophisticated credit card fraud swindle hundreds of thousands of euro from Irish

The gang, which consists of three men and a woman, are using cloned and stolen cards to steal high-end goods.

A gang operating a sophisticated credit card fraud have swindled hundreds of thousands of euro from towns across Ireland in recent days.

The gang, which consists of three men and a woman, are using cloned and stolen cards to steal high-end goods.

The gang have hit a number of towns in recent days including Letterkenny in Co Donegal as well as Dublin city centre.

Gardai in Letterkenny estimate that more than €20,000 in laptop computers, phones, jewellery and perfumes was stolen using bogus card in just one day recently.

Another spate of robberies using cloned cards took place across Dublin, including Grafton Street, on Friday afternoon last.

A Garda source revealed how a jewellery store in Dublin had €5,000 worth of goods taken by the gang.

It is understood the cloned cards belong to wealthy card owners whose banks would not ‘red flag’ larger purchases and allow transactions through.

The cards being used in the latest spate of robberies are ones which would not normally be in circulation in Ireland.

The gang are highly-mobile and use both public transport and private cars between shops.

They base themselves between Belfast and Dublin and are aged in their 40s and 50s.

Sgt Paul Wallace, Crime Prevention Officer in Co Donegal, said retail staff must take the time to go through the various security checks on credit cards.

“It is not a coincidence that staff in shops who have gone through various security checks are the shops who have not suffered as much as others.

“We are appealing to retail owners to sit down with their staff and to run through the security checks.

“If they are unsure of checks, they should consult the safecard.ie website.

“This gang and other gangs operating in this area are highly organized, confident and know exactly what they are.

“And they are also targeting younger people who may only be in stores working for the Christmas period and not completely familiar or confident with the operation of their systems,” he said.

Car Tips - Surety Bonds for Vehicle Dealers

Auto dealers in most states must file a surety bond with the state's Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) before they can receive their auto dealer license. Unfortunately, purchasing an auto dealer bond can be one of the most confusing parts of getting a dealer license. That's why we developed the following comprehensive guide to auto dealer bonding.

Surety bonds are designed to protect customers and the state from auto dealers that commit fraud. A surety bond will help ensure that your dealership will follow the car dealership legislation and regulations in your state.

On this page you'll find a general overview of dealership surety bonds. For specific information about what type of surety bond you'll need and what documents you'll need to submit to satisfy the surety bond requirement of your dealership licensing process, please contact the appropriate motor vehicle agency in your state.

General Surety Bond Requirements

As with other surety bond types, auto dealer bonds provide financial guarantees that help regulate the industry. Auto dealer bonds protect customers, sellers, financial enterprises, and/or government agencies. If a dealer commits fraud or conducts business in other unethical ways, the bond helps these entities recover from any resulting financial loss.

Additionally, having a surety bond gives your dealership credibility to both your customers and the appropriate agencies in your state.

Depending on where you work and what kind of dealership you plan to operate, you might need to file one of many different auto dealer bond types. Some common ones include:

- DMV bonds.

- RV bonds.

- Motorcycle dealer bonds.

- Used car dealer bonds.

- Wholesale car dealer bonds.

No matter the specific name of the bond, they work in the same basic way. If a bonded motor vehicle dealer breaks the bond's terms, the wronged party (i.e. a customer, bank, or government agency) can make a claim against the bond to get compensation.

Vehicle Dealership Surety Bonds in Every State

The state agency that is in charge of licensing auto dealers should tell you if you need a bond before you begin the application process. If you haven't been told that you need a bond, it's a good idea to contact the agency and make sure you don't need one. You might also take the time to learn more about the dealer licensing process in your state.

Generally, obtaining and filing a surety bond is a normal part of the dealer licensing process in every state.

Cost of a Surety Bond for Your Dealership

- The exact price you'll pay for a surety bond will vary for a few reasons, such as:

- The required surety bond amount.

- Your application and financial credentials.

- If you choose to finance your bond premium.

- Your credit score.

Generally, if your financial credentials qualify you for the standard market, your premium could be calculated as just 1% of the bond amount, which would only be $500 for a standard $50,000 bond. Conversely, dealers with poor credit could pay a premium that's a higher percentage of the bond amount.
