Card Not Found fraud in Action

In order to stop this kind of fraud activity, as a merchant, you must understand it and how to avoid CNP-Attacks. Do not assume that it does not happen to you. Thinking like that will offer more space for the fraudsters to keep on continuing with such criminal activities.

⦁ Firstly, fraudsters try to steal the payment card details. They use the details to make online purchases. But they do not acquire all the details such as full address or CVV number.

⦁ Then, they make purchases with the help of the stolen payment card details to check whether the data is working. If it works, then they use a large purchase.

⦁ The fraudsters provide the delivery address, which does not belong the particular card. It is because the verification system does not validate the entire address. They proceed with e-skimming as well.

⦁ With the help of the stolen card details, criminals buy some gift cards and then make some purchase using it, or they can sell it to other Hackers.

Combating CNP fraud

In this modern world, people are choosing online rather than purchasing things in the stores. This trend is accelerated during the Coronavirus pandemic. As online purchasing has been on the rising stage, the CNP fraud rate is also increasing. Most fraudsters focus their attack on  e-commerce sites since that is an easy point of entry. If you need to prevent those criminal activities, then you have to follow certain things, they are as follows,

⦁ With the help of Geolocation, you have to verify the location of the consumer with the active location of the payment card as a merchant.

Biometric analysis will help avoid the CNP attack. You have to verify the fingerprint of the cardholder.

⦁ You have to ask for the additional security code during the final payment, i.e., you have to ask for a CVV number.

⦁ The merchant or issuer must compare the cardholder’s address during the transaction made at the final stage. This is termed as an address verification service.

⦁ You have to set an SSL between the payment solutions and the devices. It will ensure security.

Just like you are making marketing your products and services using a different strategy, you have to layer up the fraud detection approach as well.
