Scott Adams is well known and respected in the online business community, the card-not-present payment community, and the affiliate and Internet marketing community. He successfully combines exceptional IT skills and cutting-edge anti-fraud mechanics to solve problems and quickly improve a company’s ROI. From childhood Scott was an entrepreneur. He started his earliest business in 5th grade and then launched and grew an IT/Web Consulting firm in his teens that lead to doing contract work with clients such as Fleishman-Hillard, the Bureau ofAlcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, UPS, Nextel, and MasterCard. In one recent position, he grew a small $5M eBook company that was losing their merchant account (chargeback rate > 7%) to a company with revenue of $25M annually and a healthy chargeback rate of0.7%. During his decade leading that company, Scott created one ofthe earliest affiliate metrics tracking systems and developed his own proprietary anti-fraud software. Most recently, Scott has been the Director of Fraud and Risk at Riot Games, an international online game company with millions of users worldwide. In his years with Riot as the first head of fraud they’d ever had, he took the company from being fined by Visa/MasterCard and near TMF to good standing in just a few months. He also traveled the world and met thousands of people who share a love of gaming and technology. Beyond the fraud world, Scott is a trained corporate speaker, a fixed-wing and rotor-wing pilot, and a purple belt/instructor in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
