Verified by VISA

Verified by Visa helps to greatly reduce Internet fraud and increase consumer confidence.  Simply register on Visa's Secure website to enroll and select a personal password.  Each time your Visa card is presented to make an online purchase at a participating merchant website you will be prompted to enter your password, and Verified by Visa will know that it is you attempting to make the purchase and not someone else.  Taking this extra step helps prevent unauthorized online use before it happens.
