Additional Note: CNP fraud includes fraud in which stolen card details are used to purchase online. Payments fraud is a cleared and settled transaction that a third party initiated without the authorization, agreement, or voluntary assistance of the authorized user (the account holder or cardholder) with the intent to deceive for personal gain. Third-party payments fraud generally takes advantage of a vulnerability or security failure in a payment type, initiation method, or system.
