Fraud Fight Club lives up to the hype

What do you get when you combine a passionate community of fraud fighters with a boxing ring and loads of knowledge and energy… Fraud Fight Club, brought to you by Mastercard.

Fraud Fight Club debuted at Fintech Nexus and lived up to the hype. Expert speakers from banks, credit unions, lending institutions, fintechs, and beyond engaged in spirited conversation inside our makeshift boxing ring.

The topics ranged from ChatGPT & Scams to Check Fraud, spanning the new and old ways fraudsters manipulate businesses and consumers.

The panel on Real-Time Payments and Real-Time Scams was particularly interesting, as representatives from The Fed, The Clearing House, Zelle, and JPMorgan Chase weighed in on the risks associated with real-time payments.

Scams are the most devastating fraud use case, and Cecilie Fjellhøy weighed in with the victim’s perspective as one of the victims of the Tinder Swindler.

We dedicated a few sessions to talk directly to fraud teams about getting a budget for fraud-fighting tech and building a top-notch fraud-fighting department.

We wrapped up Fraud Fight Club with an exciting session on Fraud Fusion Centers, a popular way to blend your fraud and cyber teams.

Overall, year one proved to be an excellent launch for Fraud Fight Club.
