If you work in online fraud prevention, chances are you've caught the "bug". The bug that makes you passionate about identifying & preventing cybercriminals from getting away with stealing from your company, or your client's companies. Most people who have made cyber-fraud their career have the perfect balance of analytical and social skills, a strong sense of justice and the curiosity that will drive you to go down every path of information until you "crack the case".

Just like sociology is the study of social behavior, and psychology is the study of human behavior, Fraudology is the science and study of fraud.

With guests ranging from former cybercriminals to fraud-fighters at Fortune 500 companies to law enforcement and others, you will no doubt be entertained, while learning a lot about fraud & other forms of abuse prevention!

A Fraud Fighter ,

I always learn something new!

If you are already in the fraud prevention field, exploring fraud related career options or you are just interested in fraud in general - this podcast is for you!

Kotryna ,

Karisse is knowledgeable and passionate

I think this is a useful and enjoyable podcast (I do wish for more case studies and deeper dives, as a lot of episodes seem to only scratch the surface of topics), and Karisse is a very passionate host. What makes some episodes less enjoyable though is that Karisse tends to talk over her guests without giving them enough time to properly speak, and it’s a personal pet peeve of mine when listening to interesting podcasts. Karisse is certainly not the only host to have this tendency in the podcast world, and I know it’s because she’s passionate about the topics she’s discussing with her guests, but it’s overall a much better listening experience when guests are not interrupted. I mean this criticism purely constructively and am grateful for the existence of this podcast.

Look a squirrel!

literally you have to skip forward 10 minutes before the episode actually starts. As time goes on for a talk and gets worse and worse about nothing I think two years ago you could skip forward five minutes, now it’s 10 minutes
