It’s been a long time coming, but it looks like mobile payments have finally gone mainstream. In the U.S., mobile payment transactions have risen from $32 billion in 2013 to $52 billion in 2014 and are expected to hit the $67 billion mark this year. With big names involved such as Starbucks and Apple, consumer adoption will continue to grow, as will the value of transactions.
However, not all is rosy in the world of mobile payments. Unfortunately, wherever there’s money to be made, you can count on fraudsters to beat a path in that direction. A report recently released by CardNotPresent.com makes this point very clear. Among the report’s findings was that over 60 percent of merchants are unable to determine the type of device used for a card-not-present transaction. In other words, nearly two-thirds of merchants surveyed can’t identify when a mobile device has been used to make a purchase.
“As barriers to mobile adoption continue to fall and mobile payments of all kinds surge, a green field is emerging for fraudsters,” said Steven Casco, CEO of CardNotPresent.com. “What was once not worth their time is becoming very lucrative and companies throughout the e- and m-commerce ecosystem are just beginning to understand how vulnerable they actually are.”
