Fraudsters have been causing problems for retailers over the past four quarters, leading to a 137 percent jump in fraud attacks and affecting $7 out of every $100 made in retail sales, according to the latest Global Fraud Attack Index.

The collaborative study with Forter measures the rate of fraud attempts made on U.S. online merchants and how that changes over time, and examines the types, sources and geography of fraud attacks. The study also quantifies the potential cost to merchants, left unchecked, of these attempts based on attack amounts and how these amounts are trending over time.

Some of the other highlights from the study include:

– Fraud attacks in the U.S. are up more than 10 percent since the liability shift in October 2015.

– More and more fraudsters are utilizing botnets.

– 83 percent of fraud attacks now deploy the networks of infected computers.

On Thursday, October 13th at 1:00 PM (EST), MPD CEO Karen Webster will be joined by Michael Reitblat, CEO of Forter, for a live digital discussion where they will dive into the data from the Q3 2016 Global Fraud Attack Index.
