Personal vehicle usage and public transport have transformed unimaginably in recent years, as innovative services like app-based car, scooter, or bike rentals, and ride-sharing have been introduced. We’ve seen a huge increase in demand in the mobility sector, especially over the past year. Sadly this also means that fraudsters start looking for opportunities to make a quick buck.
For example, as the use of scooters skyrocketed in many cities because of the pandemic, we saw more and more fraud attempts. We’ve seen many cases of underage users trying to get illegal access to vehicles with another person’s legal ID, or attempting to fool our system by showing images from their mobile device, just to name a couple.
