What is online fraud?

What is online fraud?

Online fraud is closer to home than you think

Many believe that online fraud is all about stolen credit cards and ordering thousands of dollars' worth of goods to far away countries. In reality, the data proves that online fraud usually originates from legitimate but dishonest buyers in the retailer’s local market.

The most common form of fraud is called "friendly fraud", where a buyer contacts their bank to dispute transactions. While "accidental friendly fraud" may occur when the customer does not realise what the charge was for, deliberate friendly fraud cases are responsible for over 60% of all claims. Buyer identity fraud from lost and stolen credit card information is much less common.
