Experian analyzed e-commerce fraud attack rates for all of 2015. The below map
charts e-commerce attack rates (by basis points) for the United States by both shipping
and billing locations. Fraud attack rates are calculated using bad transactions in
relation to the total number of transactions.
For interpretation, billing states are associated with suspected fraud victims
(the address of the purchaser) and shipping states are associated with suspected fraudsters
(the address where the purchased goods were sent).
