With Fraud Management, Blackbaud Merchant Services evaluates many factors to determine the likelihood of transactions being fraudulent and assigns a risk score, from 1-100, to rate the risk of fraud. For example, a transaction with a risk score of 30 has a 30% chance of being fraudulent.

There is no static formula to calculate the risk score. To determine the risk score, Blackbaud Merchant Services considers several risk factors and statistical fraud patterns.  These factors include Proxy Detection, IP Address Information, Bank Identification Number Country Match & Address, Email and Phone Number Checks.  For additional information on these factors, refer to the Blackbaud Merchant Services Fraud Management Risk Score Factors document.
