Meatballs, Fraud Managers, and Martinis, Oh My!

What do you get when you mix together 25 fraud managers, 30 ice cream sandwiches, 4 platters of meatballs, and an open bar? Sounds like the perfect recipe for a Fraud Fighters Forum night out!
Two weeks ago, the Fraud Fighters Forum kicked off its first New York City event, bringing together local fraud folks, risk managers, and customer experience experts for a night of conversation and collaboration. The evening was dominated by 3 discussion groups, where attendees noshed on bites from The Meatball Shop while discussing dealing with chargebacks, building a fraud management team, and wrangling payment fraud challenges.
Who was in attendance? Well we’re not here to name names, but we did have representation from Jet.com, Uber, and SeatGeek, just to name a few of the excellent companies who spent time learning, sharing, and chatting. The purpose of the Fraud Fighters Forum is to create a safe, trustworthy community where like-minded Fraud Fighters can connect, discuss trends in online fraud, share strategies, and commiserate over universal challenges. The Fraud Fighters Forum is guided and inspired by local leaders in the field – leveraging the network effect and sharing knowledge is the goal – without any oversharing of sensitive information.
The Forum is open to anyone that works to combat online fraud, regardless of whether you have an in-house fraud solution or use a vendor. To keep the conversation focused, our leaders currently have a “no vendor policy” in place. Why? Because Forum attendees want to chat and learn from one another, not dodge sales attempts.
The good news is that if you missed out on our NYC Forum, we have 2 more meetups planned in 2016! If you’re in the Pacific Northwest, check out our Seattle Forum event on Wednesday October 19. If you’re in the SF Bay Area, we’re bringing the Forum back for our 2nd meetup on Wednesday November 2.
We hope to see you out there!
