The graph below was created using Google’s charting tools.
The vertical bar graph shows, by percentages, fraud attempts (and successes) at reporting organizations by payment type. For example, 90 % of surveyed organizations reported fraud attempts (and successes) using checks, 25 % of reporting organizations had fraud attempts using ACH debits, etc.
The results shown on the graph were obtained by an Association for Financial Professionals survey conducted in 2010, entitled “2010 AFP Payments Fraud and Control Survey – Report of Survey Results”.
Other survey results indicate what organizations attempted in order to prevent fraud success and the numbers of organizations reporting fraud attempts.
