EAST POLL May to August 2019

Payment Terminal Fraud Definitions

Most of us use ATMs and other payment terminals on a regular basis for payment transactions.  While most are carried out safely and securely, there are risks as criminals target cards and terminals for fraudulent gain.  They use different attack types and, when these are reported, the way they are described can often be inconsistent and varied.

In order to help law enforcement and cardholders in the follow up to such attacks, and to create a global industry standard, EAST has published terminal fraud definitions which can be found on this website. These definitions also illustrate what the criminal target outcome is for each fraud type (Card Skimming definition can be seen above).

Do you feel that these fraud definitions are of value to cardholders, the industry and law enforcement?


Are the terminal fraud definitions published by EAST of value to cardholders, the industry and law enforcement?
