UpperBid Online Auctions Forms Partnership With Trufina to Combat Online Auction...
UpperBid Online Auctions Forms Partnership With Trufina to Combat Online Auction Fraud Partnership Maximizes Buyer Safety Surpassing Even eBay Through Identity Verification CASA GRANDE, Ariz., July 14 /PRNewswire/ -- In a response to an overwhelming amount of fraud in online auction transactions, UpperBid.com took the lead today by implementing the most in-depth degree of seller verification among all online auction sites, even surpassing the verification process of industry giants like eBay. By partnering with Trufina.com, the leader in providing online identity verification and management services, UpperBid has ensured that all sellers will go through an in-depth and thorough identity verification process. This seller verification process now required by UpperBid is the toughest in the industry. UpperBid is also offering the identity verification to buyers who wish to provide proof of their identity. "Our goal is to provide the greatest degree of assurance we can to our buyers that the person they are dealing with is exactly who they say they are," says Robert King, CEO of UpperBid Online Auctions, "and our partnership with Trufina has now made it possible for our buyers to purchase from our site with a new level of security." Identity verification will not ensure that every seller is honest, but it will most certainly make them think twice before partaking in any fraudulent activities since they will not be able to keep their real identity a secret. Though eliminating ecommerce fraud altogether may be an impossible task, it appears UpperBid is on the right track in confronting the problem head on. UpperBid may be the first to implement such a stringent verification process for online auction sellers, but they most certainly will not be the last, and they are charging ahead as the trendsetter in combating online auction fraud. In addition, it appears that Trufina is set to be the leader in providing these types of services to other online auction sites that will most likely follow suit on what is definitely an effective means in ensuring the identity of online users and minimizing fraudulent transactions. "UpperBid solves a core problem of ecommerce by bringing together consumers and merchants searching for a safe and secure shopping experience, says Chris Madsen, Trufina's President/CEO. "By using Trufina's ID Server API, both buyers and sellers can be assured that they are dealing with a real, unique, individual."
