Brett Johnson and Karisse Hendrick are a fraud Odd Couple. Johnson, a convicted (and reformed) fraudster and cybercriminal, devised many of the fraud tactics that continue to drain profits from merchants today and established the first online marketplace and forum that spread those techniques globally. Hendrick was a fraud fighter from the start, building fraud programs for several merchants, consulting with many others and spreading the gospel of fraud prevention as Market Evangelist for Card Not Present. The first two episodes of a new audio podcast from the pair that examines the fraud faced by e-commerce merchants and online consumers are available now on iTunes.
Episode 1 is an introduction to the two hosts. Johnson’s story of his introduction to crime, his arrests and his redemption is particularly compelling. Episode 2 is the first directed toward merchants. Johnson, who scours the dark web to keep up with fraudsters’ latest tactics, shares a few he has seen lately along with describing how a fraudster’s career usually progresses. Hendrick follows up with an explanation of the stages merchants go through when facing fraud for the first time.
You can listen to the Online Fraudcast on iTunes or on the podcast’s Website. It will be available on Google Play soon.
