Charity collection company uses Payne ID cards for collector authenticity verification

Payne Security : 04 December, 2008  (Application Story)
The Gorilla Organisation street collectors will carry identification cards from Payne Security designed to deter fraudsters from posing as charity workers collecting cash on the streets
Conservation charity The Gorilla Organisation is using secure ID cards from Payne Security to authenticate its official street-based money collectors and deter fraudsters from cashing in on public generosity.

The Gorilla Organization is an international charity led by experienced conservationists, dedicated to saving the world's last remaining gorillas from extinction. The charity's unique grass-roots approach to conservation promotes sustainable livelihoods, nurtures the conservationists of the future and empowers local people to tackle the main threats to the gorillas' survival, including deforestation and hunting for meat.

To support its fundraising efforts in the UK, The Gorilla Organization uses volunteer collectors in large cities to canvas for donations. Recognising the risk of fraudsters conning the public by pretending to work for the charity, The Gorilla Organization turned to Payne Security to devise a secure, hard-to-forge ID card to distinguish its legitimate collectors.

Payne Security's in-house design team worked closely with The Gorilla Organization to develop a unified card design that combines sophisticated security devices with eye-catching graphics to support the charity's branding. The chosen design includes photographic personalisation of the cardholder and a "forest" effect created using fine line printing, whose intricate patterns are extremely hard to replicate. The reverse of the card includes information about The Gorilla Organization's activities.

Cards are produced on Payne Security's state-of-the-art digital printing press, which delivers fully personalised, secure cards at high speed. As part of Payne Security's complete card management, The Gorilla Organization benefits from rapid turnaround and delivery of cards.

"It is vital that we safeguard the public from fraud and ensure that all donated money is given to our official collectors," comments Sam Davies of The Gorilla Organization. "We are delighted that Payne Security has been able to provide a card solution that enhances our corporate image as well as providing secure authentication of genuine charity workers," he adds.
