Fraudster Hunter: Delivering a strategic advantage to financial organisations to stop fraud at the source

Share this post

The adoption and evolution of online banking has historically always brought with it ever-sophisticated forms of fraud, as the current pandemic also demonstrates. Equipped with stolen identity data, automated bots and willing mules, many fraudsters still see their operation as a low-risk, high-profit game, leaving financial institutions to play catch-up. Fraudster Hunter is now changing this dynamic.


This white paper looks at the use of Bionic IDs – unique user profiles based on behavioral biometrics – and rule-based fraud prevention campaigns to identify fraudsters and automatically block their future fraud attempts. It also explains how sophisticated link analysis techniques can help banks’ fraud teams reveal large networks of malicious accounts and freeze out or bring down entire cybercrime rings.

Readers will learn how buguroo’s Fraudster Hunter combines these capabilities to ensure fraudsters can’t shake their permanent digital DNA imprint, enabling banks to:

  • Minimize the impact of fraud on legitimate customers
  • Set honeytraps that can be used to detect and counteract fraudsters’ reconnaissance efforts and attacks against other banking customers
  • Share account registration details, identities and locations with international police to show there are real world consequences to online fraud
  • Make fraud less profitable and riskier for the perpetrators

I didn't receive an e-mail

Tip: Check your spam

Sometimes our e-mails end up in spam. Make sure to check your spam folder for e-mails from The Payments Association

Tip: Check “other” tabs

Most modern e-mail clients now separate e-mails into different tabs. For example, Outlook has an “Other” tab, and Gmail has tabs for different types of e-mails, such as promotional.

Tip: Click the link within 60 minutes

For security reasons the link will expire after 60 minutes. Try submitting the login form again and wait a few seconds for the e-mail to arrive.

Tip: Only click once

The link will only work one time – once it’s been clicked, the link won’t log you in again. Instead, you’ll need to go back to the login screen and generate a new link.

Tip: Delete old login e-mails

Make sure you’re clicking the link on the most recent e-mail that’s been sent to you. We recommend deleting the e-mail once you’ve clicked the link.

Tip: Check your security policies

Some security systems will automatically click on links in e-mails to check for phishing, malware, viruses and other malicious threats. If these have been clicked, it won’t work when you try to click on the link.

Need to change your e-mail address?

For security reasons, e-mail address changes can only be complete by your Member Engagement Manager. Please contact the team directly for further help.
