The project that I am working on requires processing of credit cards. Is there any way to detect cloned/counterfeit cards? Are there any proven workarounds to prevent credit card fraud or misuse?
We are asking the customer to swipe their credit card at the POS, so no CVV is necessary. However we would like to be able to detect any cloned/counterfeit cards, if there is any such possibility of doing so.
The challenge of identifying fraudsters becomes even more complex in an unmanned POS like kiosks etc. Right now CC companies or payment gateway don't offer any protection against fraud in unmanned kiosks etc.
Already a question in stackoverflow. However was closed as appropriate here, so reposting question for further inputs.
Question updated with the case of unmanned POS such as kiosks
