Online Security: 2016 Holiday Shopping Fraud Report Shows Bitcoin Remains Most Secure

Online Security: 2016 Holiday Shopping Fraud Report Shows Bitcoin Remains Most Secure | Lorraine Jean Parker's Scoop | Scoop.it
In the end, it goes to show traditional payment methods suffer from a lot of security issues.

During the 2016 holiday weekend, global online sales have seen a significant nudge upwards. At the same time, payment card fraud increased by a whopping 20%. Consumer’s financial details are always at risk when dealing with payment cards these days. Bitcoin is a far safer option, as there is no sensitive personal information leaked during the transaction process.

The rise in payment fraud during the 2016 holiday shopping season is not surprising. Both Black Friday and Cyber Monday saw an influx of global customers. However, this transaction volume makes it harder to determine which transactions are legitimate. But the concerns ago much deeper, as five types of fraud reports were filed.

First of all, there is credit card fraud. Everyone knows payment cards are inherently insecure, and provide significant risks to both owner and retailer. Very few companies perform thorough checks of payment card data when processing an order, making life easier for criminals shopping online.

Bitcoin Remains the Safe Way To Shop Online

Identity theft is another major concern, particularly during the holiday season. Vast amounts of personal information are floating around on the Internet, and criminals will sniff out sensitive details with relative ease. Thanks to email scams, which complete the top three, users are often tricked into giving up that type of information as well.

Promotion abuse is another popular trend, although its impact can often be negated. Users will experience annoyance through this type of fraud, but it should not affect them in a significant manner. Account takeover, on the other hand, is far more troublesome. Hacked social media profiles become far more common during the holiday season. Mostly due to consumers being more careless with their passwords.

During Black Friday and Cyber Monday, mobile transactions were on the rise as well. Although mobile devices are commonly used for payments, they are not secure. Malware, scareware, and remote access trojans are just a few of the looming threats. Consumers storing payment information on these devices are at risk at any given time.

In the end, it goes to show traditional payment methods suffer from a lot of security issues. Bitcoin is a more secure solution, as no sensitive information can be obtained by analyzing transactions. Unfortunately, cryptocurrency is not as widespread when it comes to online shopping. But that situation can change at any given moment.

Protection Against Auto Insurance Fraud

Protection Against Auto Insurance Fraud | Lorraine Jean Parker's Scoop | Scoop.it
Empty description
Lorraine Jean Parker's insight:
Preventing Auto Insurance Fraud

Car insurance fraud is on the rise, and it affects every driver, whether you know it or not. Even if you are not directly involved, the widespread existence of insurance scams leads to increased premium costs in policies and longer waits for your insurance claims to be processed.

If you are directly involved, you can be swindled, suffer negative effects on your driving record, or even suffer injuries from a staged accident.

Accident-Related Fraud

Accidents make up some of the more devastating types of car insurance fraud cases. They can cost the victim time and money and may even result in injuries.

An accident-related fraud incident is often referred to as a “hard car insurance scam.”

Hard Car Insurance Scams

A hard car insurance scam happens when one person or multiple individuals cause an accident on purpose with the intention of filing insurance claims and making money.

The FBI describes multiple common scenarios that include one or more dishonest drivers and may include planted witnesses.

Example: A driver waves you forward to merge, accelerates to plow into you as you try to merge, and later denies that he gestured you forward.

Safe Driving for Accident Prevention

Protect yourself by driving safely, and always keep a substantial distance from vehicles in front of you. Insurance fraudsters love tailgaters; following a car too closely can create an easy set-up for a staged auto accident.

Visa Security Sense: How Visa Protects You?

Visa Security Sense: How Visa Protects You? | Lorraine Jean Parker's Scoop | Scoop.it

With Visa [ http://www.visasecuritysense.com/en_US/index.jsp ], you can feel complete card confidence wherever you go. Our multiple layers of security prevent, detect and resolve unauthorized use of your card information. And, in the unlikely event fraud occurs, you can rest assured that you will never be held liable for unauthorized charges—you’ll owe nothing, that’s our Zero Liability promise.

 

Take a look at our multiple layers of security: http://www.visasecuritysense.com/en_US/how-visa-protects.jsp

 

Chip-Enabled Cards

 

Smarter credit and debit cards are coming soon to a wallet near you. The United States is moving to chip-enabled credit and debit cards. We’re putting the power and security of a computer micro-chip right into your card. The new cards will be nearly impossible for criminals to counterfeit, and travel will be made even easier to more than 130 countries where chip cards are already used. Chip-enabled cards do everything magnetic strip cards do but even more securely. Plus the move to chip will help us get to mobile payments faster and more securely.

 

As this technology rolls out, there are a few things you should know.

 

Zero Liability

 

Visa wants you to feel free to use your card with complete confidence. In the unlikely event that fraud occurs, Visa’s Zero Liability policy means you won’t be held responsible for fraudulent charges made with your card or account information.

 

Real Time Fraud Monitoring

 

Intelligence is our best defense. The instant a merchant processes your card, Visa goes to work preventing fraud. We use a detection system to scan thousands of transactions per second. We look for subtle changes in spending patterns that could indicate fraud. If something's amiss—a mismatched address, an unusually large purchase, or transaction far from home—we respond immediately.

 

3-Digit Security Code

 

Ever wonder what that extra three-digit number on the back of the card means? It's simple, really. That code confirms that the card is in your physical possession when you're ordering online or by phone. If a fraudster obtains your account number, but doesn't know the security code, the purchase doesn't go through. It's just another layer of smart protection brought to you by Visa.

 

Verified by Visa

 

Give your online transactions extra protection with Verified by Visa, a personal password that confirms your identity whenever you check out at Verified by Visa online merchants. Verified by Visa is a free, simple-to-use service. Once activated, your card number will be recognized whenever you shop at participating merchants. When you shop, look for the Verified by Visa symbol and purchase with the added confidence Visa provides.

 

Identity Theft Assistance

 

If you suspect that you’ve been the victim of identity theft, Identity Theft Assistance puts you in touch with the information and help you need. Visa partners with the identity theft consumer network Call For Action at 1-888-ID-HOTLINE. They’ll walk you step-by-step through the process of regaining your identity.
