Rising Fraudulent Activities in the Digital Payment Space Post COVID-19 Pandemic

According to Europe's policing organization Europol, the coronavirus epidemic has triggered a dramatic increase in online retail fraud, with fraudsters continuing to prey on victims working from home. Criminals sold things without delivering them, swindled online stores with lax security, or utilized delivery services as phishing baits. Criminal gangs posing as delivery services pretended to offer information about a parcel, but in reality, were attempting to obtain the victim's account and credit card information. This includes "smishing," the technique of sending messages via SMS on mobile phones.

The volume and accessibility of sensitive consumer data, as well as the pandemic-driven global boom in internet purchasing, are inspiring fraudsters to be bolder. An ecosystem conducive to card payment fraud has quickly emerged as more customers save their payment card data online and increase their online purchase frequency. Every year, businesses lose about 5% of their revenue to fraud, amounting to nearly €3.6 trillion in fraud losses worldwide. Despite the introduction of Secure Customer Authentication (SCA) and biometrics, online payment fraud losses in Europe would climb by more than 50% by 2024.
