About the free webinar series

Fraud farms allow fraudsters to mechanize and scale up their fraud scams. Find out how finding the location of those fraud farms can, in one stroke, dismantle whole fraud operations and bring down fraud numbers dramatically.

Fraud farms serve many purposes in multiple industries:

  • Finance: Numerous accounts are created with fake identities to be sold for money laundering
  • Delivery and e-commerce: Coupon abuse fraud is done by referring other users, which are only other mobile devices at the same fraud farm
  • Gaming: Fraudsters spoof their location to collude in games and swindle trusted players

Here's what you'll learn:

How do fraud farms operate.
Why dismantling fraud farms is essential to lowering fraud rates drastically.
How to find the location of fraud farms
