What is Fuel Card Fraud
Fuel card fraud can happen to anyone. Driver’s who share their cards between each other and have their PINs attached to the card are easy targets for the everyday skimmer. It happens in seconds and can take some time to notice your card has been copied. Before you know it, your card can be being used for fraudulent purchase on thousands of dollars worth of fuel.
Should your business be concerned about fuel card fraud? The short answer is yes. Jubitz Fleet Services and other fuel card providers are seeing a dramatic increase in fraudulent activity. Card skimmers are on the rise at fuel stations. Thieves collect card information and PIN to duplicate onto a card for fraudulent use. These cards are then used to make purchases until they are shut off. Fortunately, by setting limits on your company’s fuel cards and monitoring unusual activity, you can catch and prevent fraud.
How to prevent fuel card fraud?
A+ Customer Service Team
At Jubitz Fleet Services, we take fraud prevention and detection seriously. To prevent fraud, the Jubitz customer service team reviews unusual activity on all accounts. Our team will contact your business if we detect suspicious activity. This is to ensure that your drivers are the one’s using the cards in a proper manor and keeping you aware of any activity that we have spotted as unusual. Keeping clear communication with your valued businesses is how we keep out cards safe.
When signing up for Jubitz Fuel Cards, you can set up daily limits for your drivers based on their needs and to protect your business from being a victim of fraud. By setting daily limits, it helps prevent skimmers from withdrawing huge amounts of fuel at one given time. Our fuel cards have gallon limits that will notify the driver at the pump that they have hit their daily limit. The limits available to you depend on the type of card your company uses. Options may include fuel types, retail lock-out, times of day, days of the week and states. If your company is only in Oregon and Washington, there’s no need to allow charges in Florida!
Jubitz can also produce reports to help your company monitor account activity. Unusual activity reports are sent out if a card is used more than expected in a single day. We do this so your company is aware of fraud before an invoice arrives. Our customer service representatives can work with you on the other types of reports that can best serve your company.
At Jubitz Fleet Services, our goal is to be your business partner by providing the services that you and your team require on a daily basis. Fighting fraud together is just one way we accomplish this. If you have any questions, want to set custom limits or discuss reporting options, contact Jubitz Fleet Services customer service at 1-800-523-0600.
