The main types of BNPL fraud are account takeover fraud, synthetic identity fraud hich entails stealing of personal information, and friendly fraud. Discover how identity verification offers the key to fraud prevention and helping to improve BNPL companies to enhance their onboarding process, but also preventing BNPL fraud, minimizing the risk of harm, and helping to prevent potential monetary and customer loss with account takeover fraud solutions.
