What Is Payment Fraud?

Payment fraud is typically defined as making a purchase or acquiring products and services illegally.  Cybercriminals often use different types of scams to steal an individual's financial account information and then use the information to illegally purchase products or services online. 

Once financial information has been stolen it is often sold online allowing multiple cybercriminals to commit payment fraud.  In order to protect your business, you need an advanced fraud prevention solution that identifies and stops payment fraud.
