PagShield Fraud Prevention

Credit Card Fraud in Brazil


Brazil is one of the top 10 countries in the world with the highest credit card fraud rates. However, fraud levels depend strongly on the business segment a merchant is active in. The most common types of card fraud are identity theft and friendly fraud. Identity theft is when someone’s personal information is stolen to gain access to bank or credit card accounts or to open new accounts. Friendly fraud is committed by cardholders who order a product or service in their own name and later claim for a chargeback by providing false information. Another kind of friendly fraud is when a person close to the cardholder makes a purchase without his/her consent.
Brazil ’s consumer defense legislation is one of the strongest in the world. Consequently, banks are required to accept chargebacks filed by consumers and immediately return the amount paid. This same legislation also significantly reduces the chances for merchants to successfully file a dispute on unjustified chargebacks. In addition, 3D-Secure is to date unavailable for online purchases in Brazil. Under this scenario, a powerful online fraud prevention solution is a must.
