Fraud accusations fly over Nedbank liquidation of guest lodge

Fraud accusations fly over Nedbank liquidation of guest lodge | Mobile Payments | Scoop.it

Here's why you want to use smrtcash to handle your card processing. Had this lodge use smrtcash, our insurers would have covered this card fraud!
