85.7% of online traders are affected by fraud
Over 85% of all the traders questioned declared that they had already been affected by fraud on at least one occasion. The levels of the losses experienced within the past 12 months have risen in comparison with the previous year. Since the pandemic, online traders have achieved a higher revenue, but have become the victims of online fraud attempts more frequently. This finding was demonstrated by a study undertaken by the CRIF credit information agency, in conjunction with the trade association relevant to this area (HANDELSVERBAND.swiss)
