FRAUD SCREENING - OVERVIEW
Fraud screening can take into account many factors ( up to approximately 150 at present ) concerning the card sales transaction and together with a weighted system tailored to your individual requirements and retail sector will score the transaction between 0 and 100 indicating the likelihood of the card transaction being fraudulent. The nearer the transaction score is to zero the lower the risk that the transaction is fraudulent. The nearer the score is to 100 the higher the risk that the transaction is fraudulent. Your system can then decide whether to accept the transaction, reject the transaction or pass the card transaction for manual review.
