Return fraud in the United States represents an $11.8 billion annual criminal enterprise, with the perpetrators of these crimes ranging from organized syndicates to everyday people.
The SIRAS Gallery of Retail Fraud has been developed to shed light on these criminal acts by sharing some real-life examples of the many ways criminals take advantage of retailers and manufacturers through the fraudulent return of products.
SIRAS works with retailers, manufacturers and the law to eliminate return fraud through its patented Point of Sale (POS) Electronic Product Registration, live return validation and product-tracking technologies.
