Retailers incurred $2.70 in costs for every dollar in fraudulent transactions according to the 4th annual LexisNexis® True Cost of Fraud Study. The study utilizes the LexisNexis® Fraud Multiplier, which calculates the “true cost” of fraud incurred by merchants. That cost incorporates charge backs for merchandise and the fees and interest to financial institutions and payment processors to replace and redistribute lost or stolen merchandise. The study also reveals that retailers who offer mobile, ecommerce and international solutions are becoming new targets for fraud siege.

The 4th annual LexisNexis® True Cost of Fraud Study, conducted by Javelin Strategy & Research, examines how fraud affects retail merchants, financial institutions and U.S. consumers, as well as identifies and quantifies the losses involved in a fraudulent retail transaction.

Findings from the study show the cost of fraud is on the rise compared to last year. This year’s cost of $2.70 per $1.00 in merchandise is up $0.40 from last year’s level of $2.30. One of the areas of major fraud growth is the mobile sector. This year, mobile merchants paid $2.83 for every $1.00 lost compared to just $2.00 for 2011, an increase of more than 40 percent. The analysis in the study shows that criminals are shifting more attention to merchants that use a broader array of sales interaction methods, including browser, applications, text and evolving near-field communication methods.

The study also found:

• The Fraud Multiplier among international merchants has risen from 2.2 to 2.5 since last year, an increase of almost 14 percent per dollar of fraud;
• Only 39 percent of merchants believe that lower fraud rates can increase customer loyalty, meaning 61 percent don’t relate fraud reduction to improved customer loyalty; and
• 33 percent of consumers who fall victim to fraud avoid certain merchants. Thus, customer confidence is critical in maintaining and improving reputation and translates into return customers for merchants demonstrating they have earned that trust.

“With the size and pattern of fraud significantly impacted by global economic conditions and the move to mobile payments, this turbulent time requires merchants to be more vigilant than ever,” said Jim Rice, director, market planning, Retail and E-Commerce Markets, LexisNexis Risk Solutions.

“Our consumer research clearly indicates that customers are less inclined to do business with merchants with which they’ve experienced fraud, yet a surprising majority of merchants surveyed in this study are not aware of this costly after-effect.”

The study was conducted through an online survey completed by a merchant panel comprised of more than 1,000 participants.
