In its Global Identity & fraud Report, Experian found that more consumers in China and India are vulnerable with 29% of consumers in each market reporting they have fallen victim to online fraud.

“Businesses can leverage orchestration solutions to connect recognition, fraud prevention and their customer experience, and take advantage of a single platform to bring all their tools and data sources together.

Experian surveyed six markets in the region, particularly, Australia, China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore. 

It further found that consumers across APC markets have varying concerns with 45% of consumers in India focusing more on fraud and identity theft against only 9% in China.
