E-commerce is gaining an ever-larger share of the retail market, with more than $4.2 trillion in online sales occurring worldwide in 2020 alone. Alongside the boost in legitimate sales are scammers who hope to take advantage of this growing market.

Fraudsters are drawn to the internet by the increased anonymity and relative ease and cost with which they can enact their scams. Fake identities, bogus social media accounts, and premade website templates are just some of the tools in an online scammer’s toolkit.

In this webinar, which has been adapted from The Online Risk Management Handbook, we highlight some common and pervasive scams occurring in merchant portfolios and on e-commerce platforms, such as:

  • Fundraising scams
  • Counterfeit fraud
  • Easy-money scams
  • Romance scams
  • And more

You’ll see real case studies of problematic merchants, hear about the latest regulatory actions against these scammers, and get practical tips for scrutinizing merchants that pose an elevated risk. Register today.

This is course #2 of LegitScript’s Online Risk Management Handbook Series
