Improve experience for BNPL consumers while lowering fraud risk

As consumers embrace BNPL at speed, fraudsters are following suit and looking for opportunities to make a profit. The benefits that make BNPL so attractive for consumers–such as fast, easy access to credit that enables immediate possession of a product without paying in full–are also elements that open the door for abuse by fraudsters.

Types of Buy Now Pay Later (BNPL) fraud

  • Identity Theft
    Fraudsters often use stolen identities of good consumers to open new BNPL accounts.
  • Account Takeover
    Account takeover (ATO) is even more insidious as it involves hijacking an existing account with its established access to credit and using that line of credit to purchase goods and services.
  • First Party Fraud
    Also known as “no intention to pay,” “first installment default” and “early payment default,” it involves a legitimate purchase by a genuine consumer who wants fast access to funds to make a purchase and then defaults on the payments.
