Wherever there are digital transactions, there is the risk of fraud. Mobile content is no exception, with ever-evolving methods to defraud customers, mobile content providers, payment aggregators and MNOs. All stakeholders must be aware of the fraud types and their differing impacts in order to align on best practice, limit the risk and stay ahead of the fraudsters.
MEF’s DCB Fraud Working Group has published a new whitepaper Combatting Fraud in Mobile Content to raise awareness and show how DCB fraud can be minimised.
Industry Views: Why business models based on revenue sharing do not work when it comes to preventing DCB fraud
Earlier this year MEF’s DCB working group kicked off a new programme to look at tackling fraud in Direct Carrier Billing (DCB). The cross-stakeholder group is currently developing a fraud framework to seek industry alignment and help market education to ensure a sustainable trusted channel.
When looking at fraud detection solutions the topic of business models for solution providers is a focus area for discussion, with a clear recommendation that revenue sharing models cannot be good for the ecosystem.
A popular payment channel will always attract fraudsters. Sad but true. So what’s the best defence against DCB fraud. MEF experts tackled the issue. Direct carrier billing has had a bumpy journey over the last decade. It was initially heralded as the next big thing – a friction-free payment channel that would bring riches back to the operators.
In our 5 minutes with profiles, MEF members talk about their business, their aspirations for the future and the wider mobile industry. This week, Declan Pettit introduces Monitoring & Compliance Partners.
