LexisNexis Releases 3rd Annual 'True Cost of Fraud' Study

LexisNexis logo 140pxAccording to a new study released by LexisNexis Risk Solutions, for every $100 in fraudulent transactions, retailers surprisingly incurred a 'true' cost of $230.

According to the study, retail merchants and financial institutions reported an overall decline in fraud rates and transactions while total retail sales rose. However, the research suggests that this is not the time to lose focus on fraud mitigation, as fraudsters’ techniques continue to evolve as retailers enter new markets through international and mobile channels. Consumers also experienced a decline in fraud losses overall but the average time it took to resolve fraud issues rose by 57% and the out-of-pocket costs of fraud rose by $244.
