Secure Payment Systems was founded in late 1996 by Linden (Lin) Fellerman, an entrepreneur with over 20 years of experience in transaction processing, risk management and collections. He is nationally recognized as one of the leading check services risk management experts. As President of Telecredit Service Corp and then Equifax Check Services, he helped develop many of the proprietary algorithms used nationwide today. This experience, his roll-up-the-sleeves work ethic, and focus on community business brings a new set of powerful tools to local retailers - at a price they can afford. Because, unlike the large publicly traded payment service competitors, privately held Secure Payment Systems is more concerned with developing long-term customer relationships than the current Wall Street stock price.
