Security Feature: Document Security Systems Prevents Bar Code Crimes
Headquartered in Rochester, N.Y., Document Security Systems (DSS)—specializing in proven, patented protection against counterfeiting and unauthorized copying, scanning and photo imaging—offers a bar code printing method developed for consumer products and tickets that protects the bar code from duplication, forgery and counterfeiting.
As reported in the “Wall Street Journal” in October, criminals are counterfeiting bar codes on lower-priced merchandise and affixing them to higher-priced merchandise before they purchase it. They then resell the merchandise on the Internet at its true, higher price for substantial profits.
DSS has developed a printing method to prevent the copying or scanning of the bar code as well as giving the retail store the ability to quickly verify its authenticity. Said Patrick White, chairman, CEO and founder, “Bar code forgery is spiraling out of control as retail losses are now rising to the $40 billion-per-year level. Our system can be printed as part of the normal package printing process and will stop the criminal from being able to duplicate, forge, copy or scan an authentic bar code.”
DSS will shortly begin presenting its new bar code protection system to some of the largest consumer packaging companies in the world.
