The Escalation of Digital Fraud

Global Impact of the Coronavirus

Digital payments around the world are growing as technology becomes more available across developing countries. Fraud is shifting drastically from counterfeit card capabilities toward harder-to-identify fraud schemes.

This report is based on 120 independent interviews of payment and security executives in 20 countries and delivers a clear picture of how digital fraud has changed the global operating environment for financial institutions.
