  • What Is Financial Fraud?

    Financial Fraud, also known as friendly fraud, occurs when a consumer makes an online or in-person purchase of goods or services with their credit card and then requests a chargeback from the issuing bank after receiving the purchased products or services. Once approved, the chargeback cancels the financial transaction, and the consumer gets a refund of the money they spent.

  • If financial fraud goes unchecked, the consequences can be severe, and too many chargebacks could prompt your bank to terminate your account and could make it extremely hard or impossible to get a new account.

    However, there are ways small businesses can fight back with the help of Francis & Associates Private Investigators.  Our highly trained investigators will review what safeguards you have in place and what is needed.  

    Our investigators are a mixture of retired local, state, and federal law enforcement. They will review every chargeback and identify if elements of a crime have been committed, and if so, our staff will work on your behalf with local law enforcement and the district attorney to recover that lost revenue while building a prosecution case.
