3 Types of Fraud Lost: Recovery varies Stolen: Recovery varies Non-receipt: NRI - Non-receipt of card Internet: Card Not Present/MOTO/Internet: Recovery is good Counterfeit/skimming: Card present - Recovery unlikely thru chargeback process Stolen/compromised number: Recovery varies Account takeover: True name fraud
4 Fraud by Type 4Q06 – 3Q07 Acct Takeover Misc Counterfeit Stolen Lost Card Not Present Consumer Credit and Commercial Card Counterfeit and Card Not Present Fraud are the fastest growing fraud type today NRI
5 Fraud types change and continue to evolve Fraud Trends Increase in Counterfeit Cases – 1Q09 trending higher than FY08. Test Merchants – Method in which fraudsters test the status of the card. Gift Cards – Counterfeit card used to purchase gift cards from a retail merchant. Day to Day Living Expenses – Not easily detected in the tools. Gas Pumps – Focused on states with fewer controls.
Industry Landscape Fraud activity - Dynamic and nimble. “Carder” Sites - Well organized with business like structures. Wireless Technology - One of the leading drivers in hacking events. Skimming - Continues to challenge the industry.
Association Alerts Four step process is followed to validate a compromise occurred. Issued after confirmation that account data has been accessed by an intruder. JPM Commercial Card handles about twelve alerts per week. Not a breach involving JPM systems. Assessment is done by JPM to determine level of risk and strategy. JPM cannot reveal the name of the merchant or company involved in the breach.
Fraud Strategy and Case Analytics Review of fraud cases to identify fraud trends and patterns of test (probe) merchants. Adjust fraud tools and strategies to target the most recent trends or test merchants. Review false positive fraud ratios weekly and revise strategies if needed to reduce fraud exposure without impacting spend Participate in regular meetings with processors, Associations and other issuers to validate industry trending. Identify Common Points of Purchase(CPP) in relation to confirmed fraud cases. We turn this over to the Associations for forensic investigation. Work with law enforcement on large fraud cases that involve suspected fraud rings. Suggest and implement enhancements to further refine fraud detection tools.
What is JPMC Doing? Analyze accounts queued in the Fraud Detection Systems or via Association Alerts to detect fraud, misuse or credit related risks (i.e. NSF Payments). Contact Cardholders to validate transactional activity. Work with the Program Administrators in reaching card members. Block accounts, flag fraud transaction(s), fraud report confirmed fraud to Associations. Process replacement card requests. Initiate recommendations on strategic opportunities related to trends and test merchants. Handle Inbound calls to verify transaction activity. Partner with Program Coordinators on potential misuse in escalation to the Program Administrators.

Fraud detection systems (cont) When authorizations meet these pre-defined criteria, the account is sent to queue J.P.Morgan security representatives analyze account and determine if contact with cardholder and/or program administrator is needed Merchant referral status put on account if appropriate
15 Fraud Investigations and Recovery Fraud Department Structure Partner with Program Coordinators on potential misuse in escalation to Program Administrators. Initiate recommendations to Clients on strategic opportunities related to improved authorization controls. Open Fraud Cases Fraud Report to the Associations Send Affidavit Request and initiate chargeback for recoveries via Association regulations Investigate High Risk Merchant Category Codes to identify potential suspect Analyze for account history for potential point of compromise Work with various law enforcement agencies
16 Fraud Chargeback Process SALE Customer calls to report fraud Affidavit sent and customer to return within 30 days J.P.Morgan puts temporary credit on account Orders copy of sales draft-30 days Representment of charge to merchant Merchant can dispute-45 days Second representment of charge to merchant-30 days If merchant contests, case in arbitration with Visa-30 days Settlement of decision by Visa
17 Fraud Investigations and Recovery Fraud Department Structure Recovery Investigations Upon receipt of the signed affidavit the Recovery Investigator will initiate request to the merchant(s) to obtain documentation on the fraud transaction(s) (This process takes approximately days) If JPMorgan Chase recovers the loss via the Association Regulations the Recovery Investigator will issue credit(s) for the fraud dollars to the old (lost/stolen) account to offset the initial debit that was placed on the old account when the case was initially opened.
Minimize Risk – Your Role Use card controls available: Restrict MCCs when possible, especially high risk MCCs. Set daily velocity and dollar limits on MCCs. Review the credit limits and determine based on usage. Set limits for the expected usage. Cash access should only be granted as needed. Flag can be set to restrict all foreign transactions in some cases.
Minimize Risk – Your Role Program Monitoring: Review transactions for exceptions and declines. Educate your cardholders to: review their transactions and statements. go into a bank to get cash or use a bank owned ATM. Use account blocking for temporary leaves or infrequent travelers.
