WEBINAR DATE:
Wednesday, July 13th, 2022 at 1 p.m. ET / 10 a.m. PT

Certain business models pose inherently more risk because they can more easily take advantage of consumers. While many of these merchants may be legitimate and operating in good faith, these business models warrant extra scrutiny because they have a history of abuse and problematic activity.

In this webinar, which is adapted from a chapter in The Online Risk Management Handbook, we focus on some of the most common high-risk business models, including:

  • Negative-option billing
  • Drop-shipping
  • No-value-added services
  • Multilevel marketing.

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

WEBINAR #2:
The Online Risk Management Handbook Series: Scams & Fraud to Watch Out for in 2022

WEBINAR DATE:
Wednesday, August 17th, 2022 at 1 p.m. ET / 10 a.m. PT
Will be available on-demand for registrants that can't attend live

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, we highlight some of the most 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.

WEBINAR #3:
The Online Risk Management Handbook Series: Deceptive Practices

WEBINAR DATE:
Wednesday, September 14th, 2022 at 1 p.m. ET / 10 a.m. PT
Will be available on-demand for registrants that can't attend live

Consumers don’t always get what they pay for — especially in the online space. Deceptive marketing techniques and SEO manipulation tactics on the internet are both pervasive and ever-changing as bad actors, hiding behind the anonymity that the internet affords, develop new and creative ways to lure consumers into well-orchestrated schemes.

This webinar discusses the regulatory bodies that govern unfair and deceptive practices, and gives examples of some of the industries that pose an elevated risk for deceptive marketing, including:

  • Health and wellness
  • Lending
  • Fake job opportunities
  • Risk-free trials
  • Credit repair
  • Debt collection
  • And more

We then describe common tactics used by merchants to trick consumers, game the system, or evade the detection of enforcement bodies.

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