Fraud can happen anywhere.

We say that because our recent analysis shows that e-commerce fraud attack rates have spiked more than 30 percent over the last year. With the recent switch to EMV, data breaches and automation are driving online fraud more than ever.

Experian® analyzes e-commerce fraud attack rates biannually by both shipping and billing locations. Fraud attack rates show the attempted fraudulent e-commerce transactions against the population of overall e-commerce orders. Download the listing of Top 100 ZIP codes in the United States for H1 2017.
