US SEARCH.com Employs CyberSource

E-commerce transaction services company CyberSource Corp. said that public record search firm US SEARCH.com has selected CyberSource to power its real-time credit card transactions.

Financial arrangements were not disclosed.

US SEARCH provides clients with access to a broad range of public record information about individuals available through the Internet, as well as through a 1-800 phone line.

All of the searches are highly automated and are performed by electronically accessing multiple, geographically dispersed public record databases.

"With CyberSource we were able catch fraudulent transactions before they became a problem, and we are continuing to minimize our exposure to the associated charge-backs," said Bob Richards, vice president of operations at US SEARCH.com.

CyberSource markets the CyberSource Internet Commerce Suite offering merchant-controlled, real-time services including payment services, tax services, risk management services, distribution control services, and fulfillment management services.
