CompSource joins Ethoca's growing online commerce fraud-fighting community



    Leading U.S. online retailer joins ranks with other companies in global
    online fraud battle

    DUBLIN, Ireland, Nov. 5 /CNW/ - Ethoca, the global leader in
collaborative fraud management, announced today that CompSource, a leading
U.S. online computer and electronics retailer, is the latest company committed
to working with other companies as a member of Ethoca's global community in a
collaborative effort to fight fraud.
    "By joining the Ethoca community we are able to work securely with other
companies to reduce fraud and its negative impact on our business. By being
better informed we can confidently reject known fraudulent orders as reported
by others in the Ethoca community, and decrease our cost of manual review,"
said Dean Bellone, President of CompSource. "I would encourage the members of
the online retail industry in the U.S., and other parts of the world, to stand
with us in the fight against fraud by joining the Ethoca community."
    With over 15 years in business, CompSource is a leading computer and
electronics retailer carrying over 200,000 brand name computer hardware and
software products. CompSource typically receives over 7,000 unique visitors to
their site and over 700 phone calls a day. Earlier this year CompSource was
named among Internet Retailer's 2007 Top 500.
    "We are thrilled to welcome CompSource to the Ethoca community," said
Andre Edelbrock, Ethoca's President and CEO. "We are experiencing fantastic
growth in membership, and adding yet another industry leader further
strengthens our community. The landscape in the battle against fraud is
changing where fraudsters, whether working alone or together, don't profit!"
    Today's announcement is further validation that the demand for
collaborative fraud management is gaining strong momentum. From online retail
to electronic payments to online charities to gaming, global leaders see
Ethoca's collaborative fraud management service as a way to make informed
decisions and enhance profitability. Ethoca is the only service that allows
companies to learn and benefit from the fraud experiences of other companies -
accepting more of the "right" types of transactions increases revenue, and
declining the "wrong" ones reduces losses and non-payment.
