The pandemic caused sweeping changes to consumer behavior, including the banking products, merchant accounts and payments channels we typically use. According to a recent Aite Group study, these changes were also ushered in by increased rates of fraud. For example, over one-third of those who used a new banking product or service (34%) or a new method of banking (37%), respectively, during the the pandemic experienced identity theft as a result.
