Combatting Fraud in Mobile Content

In February 2020 MCP Insight spoke at an MEF seminar in Barcelona about the rising threat of mobile DCB fraud, and took the decision, with co-panalists from Vene, Boku and Telecoming, to found the MEF Fraud Working Group.

The main purpose of the Group is to share intelligence around DCB fraud, educate the market about the DCB fraud risk and work towards a set of common standards.

Since its inception the MEF Fraud Group has grown and we’re pleased to be able to circulate the first cross Industry piece of education work, a whitepaper entitled ‘Combatting Fraud in Mobile Content’.

You can download the full pdf here.

We are now working to expand sections of the whitepaper to offer more detailed information about fraud types and fraud management.

If you have questions about the MEF’s activity or about DCB fraud and how MCP Insight may be able to help with either anti-fraud (MCP Shield) or compliance solutions (MCP Scanner), please contact us.
