One of the drawbacks of survey-based data is that, invariably, it focuses on a single audience. In the banking and payments domain, this typically falls into one of three groups — consumers, financial institutions and businesses. Therefore, a comprehensive view of the landscape is usually not available.
However, in recent weeks three surveys have been released that assess the U.S. fraud landscape across all of these audiences. Conducted in similar time frames, these reports provide a holistic snapshot of where payments fraud in the U.S. is today.
