Ensure that the person presenting the Card is the Cardmember. The American
Express® Card is not transferable, even amongst members of the same family.
Simple checks include matching the full name and Member Since date on the Card
with the Card presenter. You should be suspicious of any customer who is:
- Nervous or attempting to hurry things up
- Purchasing large or expensive items without regard to detail
- Looking at the Card before signing the Record of Charge
Check the overall appearance of the Card. Does it look tampered with? Is the
signature panel taped or painted over with correction fluid or erased? Are
there valid dates shown on the front of the Card? Ensure that the account
number on the front of the Card matches the one on the back of the Card, and
that they both match the account number printed on the receipt.
