“In January 2018, we were introduced to ERAD. Their team provided us experts who understood our issues and helped implement the ERAD-Recovery Solution so we could investigate a concealment case that also involved recovering money that had been laundered on prepaid cards.They were available throughout the investigation beginning with initial training for our detectives and continuing through the process until the funds were recovered. Thanks to ERAD, we were able to immediately recover the illicit funds and provide enough documentation to pursue federal charges.”
Sheriff Mark Hunter
Columbia County Sheriff's Office, FL
"In May 2018 we acquired the ERAD-Recovery Solution. Their team provided us experts in South Carolina who understood our issues and were able to configure the program in a way that worked best for our office. From implementation to training to ongoing support, ERAD has been there when we needed them. Thanks to ERAD, we have been able to make more cases, prosecute more individuals, and identify thousands of dollars stored on prepaid cards.
Sheriff Steve Mueller
Cherokee County Sheriff's Office, SC
"Waukesha County (Wisconsin) is being inundated with financial crimes, most involving payment cards found in the possession of suspects or at the scene of crimes. Fortunately, we recently attended an intelligence briefing and were introduced to the ERAD system. It seemed to offer all that we were looking for — easy to use; seamless implementation; quick and comprehensive insights; resource saver all at a fair price.
Through this process, the ERAD team provided us their experts who understood our struggles, and helped us implement the right solution and approach for our Team. They were always available and keyed in on our needs. Our experience with ERAD couldn't have been better. Our only wish was we had worked with them sooner."
District Attorney Sue Opper
Waukesha County Office of the District Attorney, WI
“Our agency began using the ERAD system In June 2017. We used the ERAD system to read over 200 cloned and prepaid cards, from a case that was initiated prior to obtaining the ERAD system. We were surprised to find that there was a $17,000.00 balance on the prepaid cards and subsequently obtained a seizure warrant. Without the ERAD system, those funds would not have been recovered. The reports that were generated by the ERAD system were extremely beneficial when I presented the cases to the prosecutors and aided them in their understanding of the cases so as to move forward with prosecution.”
Detective John Milotzky
Wauwatosa Police Department, WI
"I still shake my head at the great product you created and am thankful for how ERAD has helped law enforcement. The information I need is right at my fingertips and ERAD organizes it in a way that makes it easy for our County Attorney to build a case"

Prepaid cards are the new currency of criminals.

According to shocking statistics, payment card fraud is running rampant across the
United States. Criminals who once made a living selling narcotics and handling stolen
goods have discovered that stealing credit cards and laundering money with prepaid
cards is an easier, more lucrative and low-risk business.
