Fraud Best Practices & Emerging/Continuing Fraud Trends

Fraud-Best-Practices_BlueFraud case management tools are systems that accumulate internal and external data specific to the transaction and cardholder such as IP addresses, email addresses, geolocation, previous purchase history, billing addresses, etc. For each transaction, assigning risk at the time the order is placed. Some case management tools include a rules based fraud scoring system, assigning a score for each risky attribute of an order based on linear rules set by either the merchant or the provider. Others rely on machine learning to determine the risk of an order and others combine both rules and machine learning. Many can be used to create rules or rely on machine learning to automatically pass low-risk transactions, reject high-risk transactions and flag transactions for manual review. Orders can be canceled or accepted manually (during manual review) or through automatic rules, dependent on risk factors.
