Portland, OR - 09/18/2019 9:00am - 12:00pm (Local Time):
As we implement more fraud controls within our payments systems, there are those looking to thwart our efforts using new technology, and sometimes using older, tried and true methods, which have been around for years. Victims range from the elderly to large corporates with increased controls. During this interactive workshop, we will take you on a tour of the dark web, where Bitcoin is being used to facilitate the purchase of drugs, weapons, and financial data and you can buy debit cards, checking account numbers and counterfeit currency online. We will also cover other areas of fraud in payments, some high-tech and even low-tech scams people still fall for when not properly informed.
