Anti-fraud protection: "Protected by BL"

“Protected by BL” is a service for companies that are seriously concerned about protection against scams in business. By joining our programme - “Protected by BL” - you will show your potential business partners that secure business is one of the main priorities in your organisation.

Our experience shows that most companies start to think about anti-fraud protection only after they have become victims of the criminals.

Absence of information about fraud techniques used in international trade, lack of experience within conflict settlement with foreign companies and poor knowledge about fraud preventive methods are the main reasons for serious financial losses.

With the growth of the Internet and easy accessibility of company information, absolutely any firm from any country in the world can become a target for the fraudsters. Every year the scammers are using more sophisticated techniques that are becoming more difficult to identify.

The “Protected by BL” logo on your website will be a warning sign to any dishonest company and it will show that you are well informed about the methods used by international scammers. This is a clear sign that you are able to resist those methods. The fraudsters will know that in case of any unsuccessful deal you will be able to take immediate action to protect your interests.
