From romance swindles to crypto heists, scams are increasingly sophisticated, organized, and more difficult to solve as they often lie just beyond typical financial system controls. But banks and fintechs may be about to feel mounting pain. Last year, Americans lost more than $10 billion to online scams. Now the CFPB is looking to crack down on P2P fraud, often linked to these scams, by shifting liability to receiving banks.

Johnny and Mariana will cover the following topics In this session:

  • How do the various scams work?
  • What is driving the increase in attacks?
  • Can we unearth these patterns in the fraud and identity data that flows through the digital economy?
