Sophisticated fraud detection

The robust fraud detection engine in Chargeback Defender® evaluates high-risk patterns or conditions found during address and identity verification. It resolves false-positive AVS failures using a customer's most current address data, and summarizes all results in a single three-digit score. Bottom line: it helps you best evaluate the risk of a given transaction.
