Fraud Threats

Today, fraud threats can take many forms. Threats and fraud can be perpetuated through cyber attacks, email compromise, account takeover, social engineering and even vendor impersonation fraud. While these threats are not about a direct compromise of the ACH Network or other payment systems, they exploit vulnerabilities or gaps in processes or procedures. NACHA is committed to helping financial institutions, businesses and other organizations prevent this type of fraudulent activity.
