Press Releases

Frisco, TX – April 2, 2020 – Kevin Hodes, CEO of Swypit has published a new article entitled “Potential Scam Affecting Merchants During COVID-19 Crisis.” In the article, Hodes informs business owners that helping them is his top priority and warns about potential scams merchants can fall into.


Right now, it’s no doubt that businesses and business owners are facing uncertainty and pressure as they’ve never experienced before.


The COVID-19 crisis is even forcing businesses to shut down or causing them to struggle. In the midst of chaos, some are taking advantage of vulnerable businesses to run their scams. Kevin Hodes says, “We have received reports of businesses being contacted by callers claiming to be representatives of a merchant services provider. These callers are telling merchants that their current provider is shutting down due to the COVID-19 situation. Then, they proceed to tell the merchant they need to switch processors to continue accepting electronic payments.”

It is important to look out, protect, and support businesses in our country as they provide employment and security for many employees. The task of being a business owner at this time is no easy feat. Kevin emphasizes, “Don’t fall victim to the boiler room telemarketing scam.”

Kevin and Swypit are committed to continue to monitor and update the public and businesses of any potential threats as appropriate. It is important, as owners, as employees, as people, to remain calm and informed. Kevin encourages others to share this information through social media for other business owners to be aware. As always, Swypit will continue to be your credit card processing concierge service!
