TowerData, LLC (“TowerData”), the largest provider of email profile data to the fraud industry, has now become the newest Fraud Prevention solutions provider with enhanced proprietary features. As ecommerce companies continue to scale, attract, and retain users, fraudsters have firmly set their sights on online businesses. Global payments fraud has tripled, rising from $9.84 billion in 2011 to $32.39 billion in 2020. It is projected to cost $40.62 billion in 2027—25% higher than in 2020 (Merchant Savvy, 2020). TowerData’s new Fraud Prevention API helps companies to combat the increased threat, mitigate risk and protect their users.
Our proprietary Fraud Prevention Suite makes it easier than ever to catch fraudsters at the ‘front door’ and includes:
- Proprietary ML Fraud Risk Score

First Activity Date – The date any email becomes active is a key indicator used in evaluating risk.
Platform Tumbling Check – Catch fraudsters using sequentially named email addresses or multiple variations of an email.
