Fraud 202

Course Duration: 3 - 4 Hours

Level - Intermediate

Course Description

Payments fraud in today’s dynamic and rapidly-evolving online universe is tricky, and up until now, almost always learned in a trial-by-fire scenario. These courses will first ground the attendee in the basics of what online payments fraud is, and then give them some skills and tools to prevent and manage fraud with an eye toward balancing beating the fraudsters with accepting payments. Fraud 101 will establish the baseline of knowledge and discuss a few basic tips for fighting fraud, while Fraud 202 will dig in deeper to the world of online fraud fighting with some real-world fraud situations, international scenarios, and emerging tools of the trade.

Overall Course Objective

In Fraud 202, the goal is to continue to build upon Fraud 101 to allow the inexperienced and experienced attendee alike to have a deeper understanding of online payments fraud and know-how to use some of the common tools available. We’ll also review some real-world examples of fraud in specific scenarios and discuss the latest tools in action.


Fraud 202 is for new fraud or payments professionals who took Fraud 101 or for more experienced professionals looking to advance their knowledge in some of the areas that will be covered, such as International Payments Fraud, Account Takeover and Industry Tools. The level of Fraud 202 is beginner to intermediate. It is strongly recommended that attendees take Fraud 101 before Fraud 202.

Scott Adams
CEO/Founder of FraudPVP

Scott Adams, CEO/Founder of FraudPVP, is respected in online business, the card-not-present community, and the affiliate marketing community. He created FraudPVPasa consulting and services firm built on the idea that startups, small companies and growing companies need anti-fraud services just as much as the big guys.

In one position, Scott grew a failing $5M eBook company into one with revenue of $25M annually and a healthy chargeback rate. While there, Scott built one of the earliest affiliate metrics tracking systems and developed proprietary anti-fraud software.

Most recently, Scott was Director of Fraud and Risk at Riot Games. He took that company from being fined by Visa/MasterCard and near TMF to good standing in months. Most fraud starts in the video game world and then migrates to merchants in other online spaces, so by continuing to work with gaming clients, FraudPVP can stay up-to-date, fight on the bleeding edge of digital fraud, and bring that experience to you. 

Scott is not a consultant or mentor. He is an "evolutioneer." He doesn't just give companies advice on how to level up their strategies and power up their fraud fighting; he fights right alongside them to help them reach new heights of success, even building out new, tailored tools and technology when necessary.

Scott is also a trained corporate speaker, a fixed-wing and rotor-wing pilot, and a purple belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
