The Federal Reserve Banks of Minneapolis, Boston, Dallas, and Richmond and the Independent Community Bankers of America conducted a payments fraud survey during April and May 2012. Payments fraud is an ongoing concern of financial professionals whose job it is to protect their organization’s payments transactions from traditional and emerging fraud schemes. Payment fraud attacks and losses using cards and check transactions continue to outpace those of other payment types; regardless, all payments are vulnerable to fraud.
The 2012 survey summary identifies payment types most vulnerable to fraud attacks and losses, schemes most prevalent today, fraud prevention methods used and the effectiveness of each, and opportunities to further reduce payments fraud.
