AT&T is planning to test a fraud-detection service that will allow credit card companies to track the locations of customers who opt in.

The service is meant to provide more data to inform fraud decisions for purchases made during international travel. It will give card companies access to AT&T network data, allowing them to track customers' mobile devices to determine whether the cardholder is in the vicinity of a purchase being made with the issuer's card.
