1. It’s 3 a.m. on a Tuesday. Using customer data from August 2014 to August 2015, the San Francisco-based analytics company Sift Science looked at a sample of 1.3 million transactions with U.S. shipping or billing addresses and found that criminals are more likely to commit online fraud during the workweek. It also found that 3 a.m. is the “fraudiest” time of day, regardless of time zone.
