The Venue: Webinar

The Schedule:

  • Wednesday, September 13, 2017: 1pm - 2pm PDT (Pacific)
Undetected fraud is a leading cause of factoring losses. The factoring industry has historically relied on experience (“feel for the customer/factoring gut”), human operations and luck in detecting fraud. Recently, technology and data has enabled a systematic approach to identification and prevention of fraud. Tech giants, e-commerce companies and leaders in payments, blockchain have spent the last generation developing fraud detection and scalable protocols. Factors/alternative finance companies do not have a one-stop fraud solution, but can adopt 21st century leading tech practices. In most cases, fraud solutions involve the integration of several technology vendors organized in complex protocols and governing algorithms to effectively manage fraud risk.


In the webinar we will dive into a series of case studies using technology to counteract fraud including:
  • * Novel technologies: e.g. “Bad-guy” lists, create device fingerprints, triangulate geolocation, determine email and phone age
  • * Existing, rapid detection technologies: e.g. , live bank transaction data, 3rd data integrations
  • * Competition in SMB space: Other merchant cash advance and online lender fraud detection techniques
