Cornell University Team Sites Donation Forms - Fighting Fraud

October 20, 2022

Cornell University ten regional team programs will all get enhanced monitoring, scripting and validation enhancements to combat the common abuse of fraud incidences involving stolen credit card testing of non-profit donation forms. 

?Using donation sites is particularly advantageous to fraudsters because the amount of money and type of merchant involved in these donations often mirrors actual donations. Even for financial institutions that monitor common card testing merchants for small dollar transactions to flag in order to identify stolen payment cards, it can be very difficult to distinguish fraudulent donations from legitimate transactions. A number of publicly undisclosed enhancements will be put in place to deter such incidents on all team sites.
