About the Job

The primary responsibility of the Ecommerce Fraud Analyst is to review potentially fraudulent transactions generated from orders placed across all of our online platforms. These orders are held for review based on risk assessments done by third-party fraud screening applications that evaluate the specific attributes associated with an online order. Ecommerce Fraud Analysts then evaluate these transactions, investigating any suspicious attributes such as previous order history, velocity, and location. Online research tools are used to determine the overall fraud risk to the organization. Based on that evaluation and risk guidelines provided by leadership, the Ecommerce Fraud Analyst makes a decision to either release the order for fulfillment or cancel the order.

Additionally, Ecommerce Fraud Analysts can use various reporting tools within the fraud screening applications to identify additional orders that may be fraudulent and cancel the orders before fulfillment, contact the warehouse if the order has been released for fulfillment, or intercept packages by contacting our parcel carriers and having the packages rerouted. Ecommerce Fraud Analysts will also be expected to use their skills and experience to initiate and conduct investigations related to ecommerce theft and loss.
