Today, Amazon Fraud Detector (AFD) announces the launch of AFD Lists feature. Lists allows you to reference a set of values in your AFD rules. Fraud risk teams commonly maintain lists of attributes, such as IP, email address, and devices fingerprints to allow/deny transaction as part of their fraud prevention and detection strategy. With Lists, an organization can dynamically update these lists in real time, without re-publishing the rule.

Customers can take advantage of AFD's Lists feature by using a list of attribute values in a rule for specific actions, for example, blocking a payment from a known fraudster IP Address. Similarly, a list can be leveraged in an override rule to allow a payment to go through. A list can contain up to 100,000 values, and can be of AFD supported variable-types such as email-address, IP-address, phone number, card-BIN, etc.

Amazon Fraud Detector (AFD) is a fully managed service that makes it easy to identify potentially fraudulent online activities, such as the creation of fake accounts or online payment fraud. Using ML under the hood and based on over 20 years of fraud detection expertise from AFD automatically identifies potentially fraudulent activity in milliseconds—with no ML expertise required.

This feature is available in all regions where Amazon Fraud Detector is available: US East (Ohio), US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), Europe (Ireland), Asia Pacific (Singapore) and Asia Pacific (Sydney). For additional details about the feature, see  our documentation.
