About the free webinar series

The gig economy is thriving. And while flexible work is a lifeline for most gig employees, a few bad actors are taking advantage of these disaggregated business models. Scams run the gambit, from policy abuse to outright financial fraud.

On this webinar, Andre Ferraz and Vishal Kapoor will discuss the policy abuses they are seeing, such as coupon and refund abuse, and how the use of behavioral data can be crucial to evaluating the trustworthiness of gig workers and customers.

Here's what you'll learn:

The most prevalent scams challenging the gig economy today.
The difference between fraud and policy violations.
How to leverage location verification to prevent these challenges.
