The Pain point

  • Runs a number of marketing campaigns around the year and requires dedicated data scientists/analysts to build checks to monitor and alert fraud as the campaign gets underway and prevent
  • Manual intervention to go through dashboards, detect and block fraudsters  
  • 10 mins spent on each fraudster for validation (180+ users flagged on some days)
  • Type of fraud keeps changing based on data and nature of acquisition campaigns – ads, seo, gift cards, affiliate, invitation perks


What is their starting point / ecosystem / tech stack

  • Java, Python, Docker, Kubernetes
  • Streamsets
  • Google Cloud Platform
  • MySql, BigQuery
  • Third party machine learning tools – R, Python


Compelling Event (Trigger point)

  • Internal initiative to drive towards high-value user acquisition
  • Lack of understanding in behavioral data from user leaves with less confidence on existing fraud rule engine
  • Data collection and analysis largely solved by BigQuery + Tableau
  • Initial fraud rule engine largely static and manually patched for every new discovery of fraud
  • Customer support Workflows for inspecting and flagging fraudsters is done in another interface ; with communication lag between the fraud rule engine and experts

“We would need two full-time data scientists with knowledge of marketing and acquisition campaigns for 6 months just to build out our Fraud Engine capability let alone the rest of monitoring and continuous automatic improvement provided by Predera. We could spend $300,000 to do that, or just buy Predera and have a mature Fraud and AI / ROI management platform today”
