What have you been noticing? Recently, there seems to be a rise in Paypal fraudulent orders, previously thought to be more secure due to Paypal's built in security mechanisms. Certain skus are starting to become more prevalent in anticipation of the Christmas season and the lull seems to ending as the fraudulent orders begin to one again trickle in. What are you seeing?

After much reflection, I think it would be best practice for posters to assume anonymity regarding their place of work or any identifying information that would make this information easily accessible (via LinkedIn or social media, for example) in order to maintain confidentiality towards the systems we are trying to protect. While you are free to introduce yourself as you please, I encourage posters to use an unrecognizable handle or alias and recommend using the chat feature to set up secure ways of communicating this type of sensitive or identifying information. While some may feel a sense of rivalry, thinking if one e-commerce business does well, it will be at the cost of another, I respectfully disagree. I think there is enough buying power and enough consumers in our growing, consumeristic world to allow room for us all in the digital realm, especially as online shopping transactions are happening now more than ever before. It is the criminals, miscreants, and thieves that threaten to undermine our success, cause cardholders stress and upset, and cost business owners unnecessary loss. In terms of slowing down the fraudsters, a win for one can be a win for us all. I hope this forum can encourage new connections to be made, and that we can carry them outside this forum to other mediums to work together to make online shopping safer. Perhaps, one day in the future, there will be an unified organization to combat card-not-present fraud. Perhaps, it could be us. In the meantime, let's learn how to make the internet safer, starting with our own little corners of the internet, together.

Welcome to ECAFCA's message forum, the first of its kind catering towards fraud analysts and other interested right-fighters! I appreciate your presence and your contributions. While risk can never be eliminated, may we at least be on level playing field with our adversaries in terms of intelligence and cohesion. All posts must be respectful - Harassment will not be tolerated. We should all be professionals here, so I shouldn't have to go more in detail on this. All levels of experience and knowledge are welcome, and there are no stupid questions. While we may work for different organizations or have different roles in the e-commerce fraud world, we are all on the same team - let's not forget that. The floor is yours!
