An interesting infographic has been released by Accertify (https://lnkd.in/eCTSkBc) on typical frauds attempted. Pretty sure that air travel is not the only form of travel affected. The thrill of getting on a plane with a ticket you won't be paying for. Playing your chances with destiny, boarding and sitting in business class. Some goosebumps when the plane finally lifts off.

Carding (aka Cardin)

While millions are spent in new smart solutions to detect fraudulent activity, knowledge sharing happens on the free. Can't decide if it's sad or ironic. But for sure it's interesting. (Won't advertise the forum, ping me for more info) (Only legit please!!!) Edo out
