Overview: David Fish, Senior Analyst discusses Prepaid Card Fraud and Risk. The Webinar provides an overview of the findings from David's report: Prepaid Fraud and Risk: Between Cash and a Hard Place.




Fraudulent use of prepaid cards and the innovative systems used to counter combat fraudulent activity within prepaid portfolios.


The growing adoption over the last few years of risk management systems and services provided by processors.


Anti-Money Laundering technology and processes used in the broader financial services industry to be efficiently merged with prepaid fraud management initiatives.


The role data security plays in prepaid as well as the payments ecosystem and the impact of a recently, highly publicized breech.


Recommended practices for prepaid fraud and risk management.



"The fraud schemes that involve prepaid cards, either at the point of activation or when they are reloaded with fraudulent funds, are certainly crafty in their ingenuity and no less pernicious than other types of fraudulent activity when it comes to that activit's social and cultural impacts," comments David Fish, Senior Analyst in Mercator Advisory Groups Prepaid Advisory Service and author of the Prepaid Fraud and Risk: Between Cash and a Hard Place report. "The demand for collaborative systemic fraud controls has never been greater. Consortia and trade associations in the investigative and security areas have been a good place to start, initiating a general dialogue among institutions. However, systems should also talk to each other in such a way that the entire payments ecosystem is made more secure."
