    President, Executive Consultant. My Name is David Montague and I am the president and principal consultant for The Fraud Practice. As the president and principal consultant for The Fraud Practice I can offer much more than just 16 years of experience in eCommerce and over 12 years’ experience in fraud prevention. Throughout my career, from IBM to CyberSource to my own company, I have been repeatedly called upon to evaluate the markets and to develop new payment and fraud solutions for my employers and clients.

    Industry Recognized Expertise. Mr. Montague is a published author, having written 2 books on credit card and eCommerce fraud and speaks regularly about eCommerce fraud at events around the world.


    We aren't a big consulting firm trying to provide consulting support for any consulting needs. We are a specialized consultancy focused on eCommerce payments and fraud. When you choose The Fraud Practice, you aren't going to get a junior consultant or an inexperienced single-sourced solution. You can be assured that your company's project will be conducted by a real expert in the space, David Montague and his supporting team, so you can get answers faster and at a lower cost than using other consulting firms.
