According to Veriffâ€™s recent Fraud Report, the rate of fraud in the fintech industry more than tripled in spring 2020 during the initial COVID outbreak as people moved their banking online. The most common type of fraud in the fintech industry is identity fraud, whereby a person pretends to be someone else or uses someone elseâ€™s ID documents. This made up 70% of all fraud cases in 2020. With partnerships such as this, we can continue to stop fraudulent activity online.
