Report a Common Point of Purchase (CPP)

Visa and MasterCard have worked with issuers to develop a Common Point of Purchase (CPP) form to help issuers validate claims of a suspected compromise. The CPP form also helps align a common process that all issuers must adhere to for an investigation to be initiated.

As part of the reporting form, specific data elements are required, such as merchant name, location, legitimate use timeframes, legitimate POS entry mode, account numbers, fraud patterns, fraud POS entry mode, fraud type and loss totals associated with each account.

This CPP form is not a replacement for fraud reporting through the Fraud Reporting System (FRS) and is to be used solely for investigative and tracking purposes.
