Professional refunders are helping customers obtain highly desirable items at a fraction of the cost.

Communicating Value Internally

Merchant-Guide-8-Keys-to-Communicating-Your-Fraud-Teams-Value-300x250[merchant guide] 8 Keys to Communicating Your Fraud Team's Value

Despite your successes, a common problem fraud prevention professionals face is how to effectively communicate your team’s value to corporate leaders. Often, management thinks e-commerce fraud isn’t very significant or, even worse, that stopping fraud means saying “no” to sales. As a result, fraud departments are often unable to upgrade the technology they rely on or are left out of strategic decision-making, which can lead to more opportunity for fraudsters to empty the organization’s coffers.
