Busi­ness own­ers should be aware of pay­Wave and PayPass fraud. The con­ve­nience of pay­Wave and PayPass cards means that they are an easy tar­get for thieves. Be alert for cus­tomers who ap­pear anx­ious. Don’t al­low mul­ti­ple pay­Wave and Paypass trans­ac­tions for the same sale. If you are un­sure or sus­pi­cious, ask for ad­di­tional iden­ti­fi­ca­tion. – Sergeant War­ren Ame­duri.
