Scams have ranged from false, pseudo-scientific charities raising money for “cures” or “medical research," to fraudsters preying on individuals who want to donate to medical and emergency staff in hospitals or care facilities, says The ai Corporation's James Crawshaw.
There is no denying that the upgrade to EMV will reduce certain types of fraud by noticeable amounts, but there should be no illusion that this is a “silver bullet” to a growing fraud trend, says The ai Corporation's James Crawshaw.
With the EMV liability shift date for automated fuel dispensers (AFD) looming, subject to any last-minute changes, we are seeing major changes at fuel sites across the USA.

Fraudsters can attack multiple individuals with the same scam, knowing that the details won’t be shared. Sharing the details of a scam takes that advantage away, says The ai Corporation's James Crawshaw.
