Credit card transactions are the single largest source of payment fraud in the eCommerce industry. While financial institutions across Europe have issued EMV chip cards to reduce fraud at brick-and-mortar stores, the U.S. is lagging at implementing such solutions. As a result, identity thieves find the American market more accessible to carry out fraudulent transactions.
The scope and complexity of eCommerce fraud have become frightening, and this is making it more difficult for organizations to combat. Identity fraud, chargebacks, and fraudulent transactions are more than a threat. They are now a day-to-day reality. Online retailers must do everything they can to prevent these types of transactions from occurring.

Beyond protecting your customers, and your company should be working to protect itself. Ensuring that you enter into business relationships with legitimate companies is very important. Criminals can use fraudulent shell companies to perform business transactions with questionable purposes. This can lead to nefarious activities like money laundering or financial fraud.
Business relationships with these types of individuals put your business at risk. As regulations become stricter and laws are being enforced more readily, take precautionary steps to protect your business and avoid violation of Know Your Business (KYB) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) rules. Noncompliance with these regulations can result in huge fines. IDMERIT business verification solutions can help you ensure that the companies you work with are who they say they are.
