Why download it?

Well, here are a few key discoveries we've made in the first half of this year:

The net fraud rate increased by 15% compared to H1 2020

Fraud continues to be on the rise despite businesses investing in systems and solutions built for prevention.

Identity fraud experienced the highest year-over-year increase by 19%

This is a testament to the many fraud incidents that continue to plague businesses and individuals on a global scale.

Out of the various fraud types, recurring fraud experienced a 14% decrease year-over-year

This is down to fraudsters discovering new ways to commit fraud and infiltrate systems. They're consistently employing new strategies that evade crosslinking, allowing them to only be linked solely on face data.

As crypto grows in popularity, it experienced the highest fraud increase in the first half of 2021

Something for investors to consider as digital currencies becomes more prevalent over time. 

The fintech sector saw a 99% increase in recurring fraud during the first half of 2021.

This can be evidenced by velocity abuse — once a fraudster has been approved and infiltrates a system, they will utilize that loophole to get approved as many times as possible, normally verifying different real users without telling them what they’re being verified for.
