Account Takeover Fraud
How do you know when a customer profile change is legitimate? Each year, more than 35 million Americans change addresses, but now fraudsters are using other customer information channels – including email and telephone – to perpetrate account takeover.
Screening non-monetary transactions, specifically those that involve changing customer communications credentials such as mailing address, phone number and email address, can help thwart potential account takeover attempts.
When examining non-monetary transactions, consider discrepancies in:
- Address changes, specifically out-of-pattern moves
- Phone changes, including area code disparities
- Email changes, particularly when top-level domains don’t match customer profiles
