  • Anyone here with a business? Need advice!

    I own a small electronics shop. The shop next to me recently got defrauded. I was talking to the owner of that shop earlier and it made me really conscious of how I'm vulnerable to such risks too.

    Unfortunately, I didn't understand half of what he said. He was ranting and was really speaking fast so i couldn't follow what he was saying. I think he had an IT company investigate what happened. It seems like he had several large purchases from a single ip address and he didn't notice this.

    I'm thinking maybe I should hire a company or maybe tighten my security? Any tips on how I can monitor online orders? Is there a software that can do this?

    I really don't want to be defrauded. Please help! Thanks.

    Since you are just a small company as you mentioned, have you ever considered an independent IT personnel who can do those kinds of work for your. Maybe someone who can work part time? Through Odesk perhaps?Services from big companies might be costly and of course you do not want any further costs involve.

      Er, no. I'd rather not go that route.

      Anyway, I just had a talk with my neighbor and I asked him what he plans on doing to prevent the incident from happening again. He told me that he was advised to contact this company, TSYS, and ask for their services. I'll probably use their services too once everything's settled down. That is, once they've done whatever it is that they're going to do for my neighbor. Maybe they'll install some software for security?

        That is the advantage of having neighbors!!

        Maybe you should get in touch with the provider mentioned. Whatever cost is, still its worth it.
