Current fraud trends to watch out for
With big surges comes operational gaps. Expect challenges from these fraud pressure vectors:
eBay marketplace “triangulation” fraud
The fraudster creates genuine seller profile on marketplaces and uses stolen card data to fulfill the order from another retailer. Attack vector moved to popular SKUs over the summer.
Look-alike fraud websites
Fraudsters clone brand websites to replicate brand look onto similar URL, but do not ship product after accepting payment. Trending SKUs will be targeted.
Touchless delivery abuse risk
As FedEx and UPS moved to no-signature delivery, retailers saw an uptick of Item-Not-Recieved (INR) and Significantly-Not-As-Described (SNAD) claims.
Curbside pickup BOPIS mule fraud
Many retailers like Dick’s Sporting Goods and Best Buy have accelerated BOPIS (touchless curbside pickup) to counter store closures. They also saw an uptick in mule fraud.
