Consequences of account takeover

Most institutions find it difficult to detect and prevent account takeover fraud for several reasons. For starters, account takeover fraud is a relatively new type of fraud. Most fraudsters use bots to imitate usual login activities, making it difficult for institutions to flag transactions as suspicious.
