    the fraud practice


welcome tothe fraud library!

The Fraud Practice provides the Fraud Library as a free information resource to merchants and risk professionals around the world. We have attempted to keep information in the library non-vendor specific while providing sources for each of the techniques in the library. The content level within the free area is intentionally general in nature and does not provide any specific guidance for the creation of a fraud solution or strategy as this site can just as easily be accessed by fraudsters as well as merchants. If you need specific guidance for your company, send us an email or give us a call to discuss your needs.
