Apple Federal Credit Union is one such firm that was a victim to fraud until they approached Fiserv. “The client was on the receiving end of a number of attempts at fraud and had incurred heavy losses,” states Yabuki. Fiserv was able to offer the client assistance in incorporating Risk Office and reported an excess of $10,000 saved in six months. The solution works in tandem with other tools from Fiserv like EnFact, TranBlocker, and CardTracker that help the client in creating customized authorization rules and risk tolerance refinements.
