Our Story

At Fraudio, our journey began with a vision—transforming the fraud detection landscape to empower the global payments ecosystem. Our foundation was built by a team of visionaries who dared to challenge the status quo. We are not just a company but a movement dedicated to pioneering a safer financial world for all.

“We worked in the payment industry for many years and became so frustrated with the options available for fraud detection that we decided to build our own solution. We thought, hang on, there must be a better way.” - CEO and Co-Founder João Moura.

Fraudio was born out of frustration with existing fraud detection solutions and the belief that there must be a better way. The founding team leveraged their extensive experience in the payment industry to develop a sophisticated, centralized data solution using AI and machine learning.

This innovative spirit drives our development, enabling us to offer cutting-edge products like Payment Fraud Detection, Anti-Money Laundering (AML), and Merchant Initiated Fraud Detection (MIFD) solutions.

Fraudio’s mission

This brain detects fraud in real time and creates unrivalled value for our partners and their customers. This mission fuels our daily operations and strategic decisions, guiding us towards our vision of a secure and transparent financial ecosystem
