  • Provide community perspective and act as a sounding board for members' fraud reduction initiatives

At Money20/20, the PRFC will host a private social today for interested corporations to network and learn more about the benefits of joining the consortium and working together to identify complex fraud trends and reduce losses. Over 30 interested membership organizations will attend to exchange ideas and learn about the mission of the PRFC. Pursuant to the Consortium's maxim "The Power of Collaboration", the PRFC endeavors to be on the leading edge of the fight against complex financial fraud.

Organizations are encouraged to join the PRFC in order to:

  • Share information, experiences and ideas
  • Explore the latest fraud trends, developments and tools
  • Leverage the value of a collective knowledge base and data
  • Engage with like-minded people on innovative fraud-fighting initiatives

About the Payments Risk & Fraud Consortium

The Payments Risk & Fraud Consortium is a newly formed coalition of payments companies who joined forces to better understand and combat complex financial fraud. Members understand that, as fraud increases in frequency and sophistication, the evolving payments ecosystem is at ever-increasing risk.

The founding members are united by a common concern. They recognize that fraud results in considerable financial losses and poses significant reputational risk. Ongoing expenses for preventing, detecting, and responding to financial fraud further increase direct costs.

Fundamentally, members of the Consortium have come together to discuss ways to increase the efficiency of transaction processing and enable effective countermeasures, while balancing the customer experience. Their belief is that they are all stronger when they work together. Research. Collaborate. Educate.
