    Stop, Challenge, Protect: the Authorised Push Payment scams debate kindly hosted by UK Finance

    Authorised Push Payment (APP) scams – where victims are duped into transferring money into the fraudster’s account – cost the UK nearly £355m last year.  This is a growing issue, especially as customers are not protected legally in the same way as they are with unauthorised fraud (where someone steals money without your knowledge or permission).  At the end of May, a new voluntary code went live which sets out increased consumer protection standards to help reduce the occurrence of APP scams. Any customer whose bank is signed up to the Code will be fully reimbursed if they fall victim to an APP scam, provided they did everything expected of them under the Code.  So far so good – but some questions are still to be answered:

    • What more can be done to tackle this type of scam?
    • Should companies whose data breaches or other practices help drive this type of crime be called to account?
    • Is law enforcement response effective?

    Hear our expert panel discuss these and other issues.  It promises to be a lively debate!

    18:30hrs to 19:30hrs - Panel Debate and Q&A
    1930hrs to 21:00hrs - Networking Reception
