Internet-based fraud is when the internet is used to steal information and resources for financial gain. Simple fraud scams can seek money or personal details, while others seek personal information that will be misused to obtain money, resources or information by deceptive means. Fraud detection mechanisms support the successful identification of fraudulent system transactions performed through security flaws within deployed technology frameworks while maintaining optimal levels of service delivery and a minimal numbers of false alarms. The strategic method of fraud is an effective way to detect and describe both known and unknown frauds. When used proactively to detect unknown fraud, it provides laser-like accuracy that allows for much more efficient investigation than the traditional shotgun approaches that have been used in the past.
