Imagine this.. You've lost your wallet, or your purse has been stolen. Suddenly, all of your credit cards are in the hands of a thief. What do you do? For many, the answer is: nothing. Consumers may not even be aware that their credit and debit cards have been lost or stolen. As a result, fraud may occur before you know that you have become an identity theft victim.
Traditional identity theft solutions do little to address this problem. They do not deter a criminal from stealing your cards nor do they automatically prevent credit card misuse; instead, they seek to protect you by identifying patterns of activity that may be fraudulent. For identity thieves, this is
not a significant deterrent since it does not go into effect until the thieves are already using your stolen cards.
The First Proactive Credit Card Fraud Prevention System
The Sentry Card™ is a new weapon against identity theft that provides participants a “trigger” cardor dummy card that looks like an actual credit card. The Sentry Card™ can have an issuing bank’slogo, a Visa®, MasterCard®, American Express® or Discover® logo and cannot be identified by a thief.The trigger card waits among live cards and if used, immediately triggers a chain of actions that aid in the capture of the assailant and the restoration of all accounts. Because the Sentry Card™ participant is aware of the function of this card the only potential for use is by a thief.
The Sentry Card™ has the potential to stop consumer identity theft before the consumer even
realizes their belongings are missing. Immediate response to fraud by the cancellation,
notification and issuance of new cards means less time life is interrupted and a quicker return to normalcy. In addition to these valuable benefits the Sentry Card™ has the potential to increase collected data on fraudulent users, reduce false fraud notifications and to save millions of dollars in claims. And that is what makes the Sentry Card System so powerful.
This product not only protects your credit, it also serves as a deterrent to would-be criminals. For the first time, identity thieves are detected and stopped dead in their tracks before a loss occurs.
This simple idea will have significant impact on credit card fraud and help reduce losses to consumers, retailers and card issuers. It will also help victims of identity theft to return to normal more quickly and with less cost and stress.
