This is an upgrade from MaxMind Credit Card Fraud Detection v2.1. It was about 90% re-written to take advantage of newer MaxMind fields.
What is minFraud? minFraud is an online fraud detection service that reduces chargebacks by identifying risky orders to be held for further review. minFraud identifies whether an online transaction comes from an anonymizing proxy, high risk IP address or email. minFraud is used to scrub online e-commerce transactions, affiliate referrals, surveys, account logins and signups.
What is the minFraud Network? Since the minFraud service is a hosted solution, it connects and consists of all the e-commerce businesses who are currently using the minFraud service. Currently, more than 6,000 e-commerce businesses are protected by the minFraud service through our client and partner networks. By combining feedback and resources from the minFraud network and delivering new features designed to combat emerging fraud trends, we are able to help merchants reduce chargebacks effectively.
Why join the minFraud Network? Businesses may prefer to have an in-house screening system, but we believe a hosted service has advantages over an in-house system. While in-house fraud screening systems may be effective, over time, fraudsters will figure out a way to circumvent the security measures. Being part of the minFraud Network allows for a more dynamic and adaptive approach to fraud detection through mutual protection. For example, if we detect suspicious activity from an IP address, it will be flagged as high risk throughout the network in real-time. Feedback from merchants will serve as a warning signal to all others within the network. For that reason, the minFraud service can complement existing in-house fraud checking systems very well.
Key features include:
Geographical IP address location checking
High risk IP address and e-mail checking
Issuing bank BIN country matching
Post query analysis
