Webinar 1: Money Mules and Bogus Subscriptions: How Scammers Infiltrate the Payments Ecosystem

Date: July 16
Time: 11:00 AM PT

Join payments experts Shari Savlick, David Press, and Will Seitz as they delve into the latest trends in transaction laundering. This webinar will uncover the complexities of a multi-part scam where fraudsters obtain payment processing for multiple websites and enroll victims in low-dollar monthly subscriptions using stolen credit cards. These cards are often obtained through fake identity validation schemes, sham vehicle history report requests, and even phony parking tickets.

Our speakers will thoroughly explain the intricacies of this scam, revealing the patterns and techniques used by criminals. Most importantly, they will offer practical advice on how to protect your portfolio from these illegal actors. This session is essential for anyone looking to understand and combat the latest fraud tactics in the payments ecosystem.

Webinar 2: How AI Will Remove The Need To Manually Classify The MCC

Date: August 22
Time: 12:00 PM PT

The future of Merchant Category Code (MCC) classification is here, and it's powered by artificial intelligence. In this webinar, we will explore how AI is transforming the traditionally labor-intensive and error-prone process of MCC classification. Advances in machine learning and natural language processing are enabling acquirers to automate this task with exceptional accuracy and efficiency.

Attendees will gain insights into the latest AI technologies and their practical applications. Real-world case studies will demonstrate how AI is streamlining MCC classification, reducing costs, and enhancing compliance efficiency. This session is a must-attend for those interested in understanding how AI is shaping the future of merchant classification and its implications for their business.
