Begslist Boosts Fraud Prevention Capabilities with WePay
CHICAGO, Dec. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Begslist.org, a website where people can raise money and receive online donations, is proud to announce its partnership with WePay. WePay is an online payments platform for individuals, organizations, and businesses. WePay helps people sell tickets to events, send invoices, sell items online, and accept donations online. This payment technology company also provides an API that allows developers to access its payments platform. Begslist.org integrated the WePay platform on its website in order to provide a safer and a more secure online donation website for its Begslist users to raise money and receive online donations.
Begslist Founder, Rex Camposagrado states, “We have been witnessing a greater number of responses from our Begslist users who say they are receiving numerous spam emails from con artists who claim that they are willing to offer donations, but in return require a fee. Other emails that users may see are the general fake proposition emails giving false hope with receiving online lottery or beneficiary money. We at Begslist want to give our users a great experience on our website and put a stop to all the fraud by adding more privacy so that con artists can’t capture contact information.”
The Begslist Founder also goes on to state, “We have used PayPal for our donation platform for the past few years, but we discovered that sometimes a user’s email address is displayed when a donation attempt is made through PayPal and this is a main reason on how spam artists are capturing email addresses on our website. With WePay, the email addresses of Begslist users are not displayed when making a donation attempt and this will be a great way to stop spam artists from getting users’ emails to send spam.”.
In terms of online security, all donations are securely processed using industry-standard Secure Socket Layer encryption, or SSL. Begslist’s encryption technology with WePay ensures a safe and secure donation process where users can receive online donations safely and also be assured that they will not get spammed by outside users.
Since 2007, Begslist has helped thousands of people raise dollars online for things like paying bills, medical expenses, money for school, crowd funding for startups, funeral expenses, travel expenses, charity donations, toys for kids, money for the holidays, fundraising, and recovery from a natural disaster.
“Giving is a universal opportunity. Regardless of your age, profession, religion, income bracket, and background, you have the capacity to create change.” Laura Arrillaga-Andreessen – Philanthropist. Begslist believes in the same giving values. Our mission is people helping people through generosity and compassion.
Begslist is a free way to ask for donations online, maintain privacy, and protect one’s pride when raising money or begging for help. Now with the recent United States of America JOBS Act, crowdfunding has become a new stable on Begslist’s website where start up companies can ask for donations online as well. Begslist also has interesting articles on our Begslist Blog that offers tips, inspiration and guest commentary about the economy.
