Problem overview

Detecting social engineering scams poses a significant challenge due to the fraudster's avoidance of direct interaction with the banking platform. Instead, they manipulate the victim into initiating the payment personally. Consequently, traditional fraud detection methods become ineffective as legitimate users log in to their accounts from their own devices and locations, and also provide appropriate authentication credentials to carry out the payment.

By leveraging behavioral insights, financial institutions can claim back the advantage over fraudsters. The key lies in analyzing the account holder's behavior during their banking session. Paying attention to indicators, such as suspicious mouse and phone movements, hesitation, and the dictation of account numbers makes all the difference when trying to win the war against scams and fraud.

Impersonation scams

In impersonation scams, fraudsters often adopt the disguise of a well-known organization, such as the police, a customer's bank, their utility provider, or a government department. By impersonating these trusted entities, scammers aim to manipulate and deceive individuals into transferring money to an account under their control.
