Close monitoring of fraud

In France, the fraud rate on card payments and withdrawals stood at 0.077% on local transactions in 2011.


  • The fraud rate for cards issued within the SEPA is significantly lower that on cards from outside the SEPA, justifying the efforts made in Europe in recent years to migrate all payment cards and terminals to standards that ensure a high level of security.

  • International transactions account for just over 10% of the total value of card payments, but 49% of the total amount of card fraud.
