This risk check initiates when the algorithm has detected behaviour in the card number and/or CVC fields that appear to be automated or scripted behaviour.
Fraudsters employ various scripting techniques to test cards at high velocity. The algorithm behind this risk check analyses temporal, key-based, and mouse-based behaviour of users interacting with the payment fields. The primary risk vector this risk check is focused on is detecting high-velocity card testing scenarios.
There are two threshold levels for this check. This allows merchants to set different score modifiers depending on how likely the algorithm thinks the behaviour is fraudulent.
Interactions that meet a minimum threshold of suspicion triggers this check. Most interactions do not trigger either of these threshold level.
