There are reasons to believe that fraud losses are actually higher than recognized.  Some fraud losses are buried in card interchange fees.  A significant amount of fraud losses likely get reported in banks’ accounting as credit losses.  But they weren’t due to poor credit decisions; they were fraud scams from day-one.   Software is widely installed to identify specific patterns and “unusual” transactions.  But the fraudsters know this and are constantly striving to create new patterns where their transactions are designed not to be flagged.  Like in a game of chess, the advantage goes to the side that thinks the most moves ahead.
