Fundamentals of Fraud Prevention and Monitoring

FREE $19.99




Understanding how fraud is committed – and especially how it’s prevented – is not easy.

There are countless techniques to take into account. Perpetrators can be of different types and use different approaches.

For anyone aiming to know more about fraud prevention – whether as a fraud monitoring professional, a payments professional, or any other type of professional that wants to master the theory and practice of fraud prevention, finding the right information is crucial.

Unfortunately, most fraud prevention courses nowadays don’t fit the minimum requirements.

Either the information is too academical and not something you can put into practice, or there are no specific examples, or information is just missing.

In a world where information must be constantly updated, it’s hard to find a reliable information source for this type of course.

And this has consequences not just for your career, but yourself personally as well.

What happens when we don’t have enough information (or the adequate format) to master fraud prevention?

  • We become confused by the myriad fraud prevention techniques and types of systems;
  • We can’t properly identify when to use a certain technique to prevent a certain type of fraud;
  • We become frustrated and irritated that we don’t know why a system works, or why it doesn’t;
  • We can’t properly identify why a technique works or not;
  • We won’t know how to optimize a specific fraud prevention solution (or why it’s not optimized) – both in terms of people and machine problems;

So what is my proposed solution?


Unlike other fraud prevention courses out there, this course is comprehensive and updated.

In other words, not only did I make sure to touch on more topics (and more in-depth) than other courses I have seen, but also make sure to keep the information relevant to the types of fraud committed nowadays.

Because fraud prevention systems seem complex, but they rely on simple principles and practices.

In this course, we will cover the essentials of how fraud is both performed and prevented. Information that comes both from the principles and theory present in the finance world, but also my own experience and insider knowledge, working with multiple institutional banks.

We will cover four main modules:

  • Fundamentals of Fraud (who are the perpetrators, how they obtain information, and how they commit fraud);
  • Approaches to Fraud (including general approaches of obtaining and using information, from identity theft, to convenience fraud, social engineering and more, specific techniques such as cash return fraud or card block fraud, and the different types of perpetrators);
  • Fraud Prevention Techniques (individual techniques to prevent fraud including hotlists, velocity checks, and many others);
  • Fraud Prevention Systems (how complete fraud prevention solutions are assembled and maintained, and best practices of doing so);

By the end of this course, you will know exactly how fraud is performed, but, more importantly, how it is can be prevented, in terms of both principles, individual techniques, and collective solutions.


This course is targeted at different types of people. Naturally, all current or future fraud prevention professionals will find this course useful. But any other professional that aims to know more about fraud monitoring practices will find it useful.


Who this course is for:

  • Any current or future fraud monitoring professional
  • Anybody looking to know more about how fraud is committed and prevented
