Black Friday and Cyber Monday are synonymous with big sales and deal bonanzas that kick-start the festive shopping season. These deals are not just online or in-store, many purchases, particularly high-value, luxury purchases are often done over the phone in consultation with the retailer. There is often a sharp increase in online and mobile banking fraud during this time of year, which usually occurs when sensitive payment details including PIN codes are misappropriated. The value of unauthorised electronic payment frauds stood at €21.5 million for the second half of 2021 in Ireland. Keep security top of mind this festive season by minimising fraud & chargebacks with Prommt’s secure, trusted, branded payment requests.
