Sift's Brittany Allen will provide a transparent look into how merchants can tackle one of the most challenging forms of fraud. With real use cases of collusion fraud from across multiple companies' experiences, plus examples of criminal chatter from the deep and dark web, attendees will leave with clear takeaways to improve their own team's fraud prevention processes by leveraging internal data, machine learning, and partnering with knowledgeable fraud fighters.
During the session, Brittany will discuss the inner workings of the most prevalent and emerging types of fraud marketplaces encounter, including:
ATO's and Merchant Fraud: Whether it's a new account or the ATO'd account of an inactive seller, we'll cover the potential risk of marketplace collusion.
BNPL Fraud: A fraudster controlling both a seller and buyer account who selects installment payments at checkout, eventually building to $200,000 in payouts.
Empty Package/ Item Not Received Fraud: As a marketplace, when it comes to empty package claims, how do you know which side to believe? And what if both sides are actually fraudulent and your marketplace isn't the target, but the postal service is?
Voucher and Points Cashout: How to prevent fraudsters from abusing vouchers and promos.
In the U.S. -and around the world- cryptocurrency regulations are evolving quickly. As adoption increases and transacting with cryptocurrency becomes a new normal, lawmakers and regulators aim to create regulations that will protect consumers and mitigate new threats and risks. With the borderless nature of cryptocurrency, regulators have recognized that where a customer is transacting from is essential. Regulators in the U.S. and globally have recognized the importance of geolocation as part of any platform's sanctions compliance program, risk-management system, and financial crime prevention. After all, can you “know your customer” if you don’t know where they really are?
In this session, you’ll gain a better understanding of evolving cryptocurrency regulations and why geolocations matter more than ever as well as how leveraging geolocation can help you start accepting crypto on your platform.
An interactive, ask-us-anything style panel where merchants can get beyond the hype of crypto, and understand how they explore this payment method in a safe, secure way that will satisfy consumers on the one hand, and regulators on the other.
This presentation will cover the world of "carding" on both the deep web and the dark web, as well as popular end-to-end encryption apps like Telegram. Attendees will learn the process in which stolen card info is offered for sale, purchased, and ultimately utilized by fraudsters or "carders". Attendees will learn best investigatory practices, evolving trends, and see the different dynamics of "carding" to understand why it is such a easy avenue for criminals to become proficient at.
Despite overall economic uncertainty and crypto volatility, consumer interest doesn’t seem to be waning.
In a survey of 1,000 people conducted by Bank of America, 30% of respondents reported that they had no plans to sell their crypto holdings in the next six months. What’s more, 39% and 34% of those surveyed cited that they have used crypto as a payment method to make online or in-person purchases, respectively. The crypto space continues to mature leading to implications for merchants wanting to ward off nefarious activity while enacting sound risk mitigation strategies.
As crypto becomes more widely adopted by consumers and accepted as a form of payment by businesses, merchants need to carefully consider how to adapt to this new form of currencyWhat’s more, as regulators enforce sanctions designed to curb the illicit use of crypto, proper digital identity verification procedures are more critical than ever in combatting bad actors while ensuring users can transact safely and securely.
This webinar explores why the relationship between merchants and consumers needs to be underpinned by trust and how organizations need to ensure fiat and crypto off and on ramps and transactions are safe and compliant.
- Understanding the intensifying interplay between fiat and crypto off and on ramps and the implications for merchants
- Key factors to consider when making technology decisions with respect to identity verification and onboarding processes
- Why evolving regulations that differ across jurisdictions call for agile practices and constant monitoring

With e-Commerce booming, merchants are increasingly turning to fraud intelligence companies to prevent fraudsters impacting their growth. While it’s true anti-fraud systems are becoming more sophisticated at detecting fraudsters - rules-based systems can be fooled. With all the tools and knowledge available on the dark web, even mid-level fraudsters can bypass security measures. All they need to do is mimic original account holders of stolen accounts and credit card details in a process called ‘warming up the shop’.
It all sounds too easy. And it can be. With stolen credit card details, e-Commerce accounts and the tools needed to attempt account takeovers (malware etc.) readily available for purchase on dark web marketplaces, half the work of the fraudster is already accomplished. Aside from patience, some additional tools to spoof digital fingerprints (unique identifiers of a user’s device setup, IP address, geo location etc.) and even legitimate browser cookie sessions are all available to buy online. One of the main tools used are anti-detect browsers, a fraudster tool resembling a regular internet browser, but packed with features to mask a user’s true identity and location, mimicking a regular user’s browsing session.
We aim to present to you how the process of ‘warming up the shop’ looks from start to finish, showing you some of the fraud tools available on the dark web to aid fraud attempts - you’ll be surprised how sleek and professional they appear, even giving legitimate companies' marketing campaigns a run for their money!
Imitation is never perfect. The perfect solution to prevent a successful ‘warm up’ attempt comes in the form of truly knowing your users (KYU) and understanding their interactions and behaviors. Advanced fraud solutions powered by machine learning models can effectively weed out fraudsters before they’ve had a chance to warm up. Join us to discover how.

- Be aware of the tools and knowledge available on the dark web that allow fraudsters to fool rule-based fraud systems.
- How KYU Advanced fraud solutions powered by machine learning (ML) models can help you understand every user behavior and interaction - and prevent fraud from happening.
