Application Fraud: Coming Soon to a Bank (or CU) Near You

Originally recorded on February 18, 2016, 45 minutes

A recorded webinar brought to you by CUNA Strategic Services and BAE Systems.

The adoption of EMV has brought new attention on application fraud and first-party fraud as major fraud types.

We'll present findings from a survey of 83 financial institutions on the state and trajectory of application risk assessment and the techniques being used to vet new members/customers. Next, we'll show real-world examples of the methods being used to commit application fraud and explain the approaches required to combat fraud effectively.  

You'll learn about:

  • Causes of the global rise of application fraud
  • Methods you can employ to combat application fraud
  • Application fraud scenarios such as use of synthetic IDs, account spring-boarding, and use of common DDA source
  • Targeting fraud throughout the member/customer lifecycle including blocking, ongoing account monitoring, transaction monitoring
