Credit card fraud is one of the main reasons the merchant suffers financial loss.
Bank fraud alert is the main identification of the fraud activity. In most cases, it leads to chargeback and there three reasons it may occur:
- Merchant error - double charges, confusing billing logic, unclear descriptors, not available contact details.
- Criminal fraud - criminals gain access to credit card information and make unauthorized purchases.
- Friendly fraud -customers dispute the transaction claiming they didn't receive the order \ it was damaged \ they didn't make the transaction.
