What is a minFraud Alert? What should I do with it?

A minFraud Alert is a notification that a previously scored transaction may be higher risk based on new information we have received. After initial scoring, we continue to monitor transactions with risk scores less than or equal to 10 for another 24 hours. If we receive new information related to these transactions that lead to a transaction having a re-calculated risk score greater than or equal to 75, a minFraud Alert is sent out.

You can receive alerts via webhook [login required]. You can also specify an email address to receive alerts.

Depending on your company’s risk profile, you may wish to manually review a transaction that received an alert to determine if further action may be necessary. We have additional information about the risk score that may be helpful for assessing your company’s risk thresholds.
