Fraud is less based on the location of the cardholder, and more based on the product or service offered. For example, online video game subscriptions are going to have more fraud than wool knitting supplies simply because of the folks interested in the product.
From a fraud perspective I don't think there is any significant difference between the US and Canada. However, from a law enforcement perspective, perhaps the US is more active than Canada? Truthfully I'm not sure about that, but on our side of the border in Canada, I've not been overwhelmed with the interest and efforts of law enforcement with small fraud cases. Then again, I think more investments are being made into cracking down on this, which is a good thing. It used to seem that unless it was a huge fraud (like hacking or impacting a bank's network or something like that) then there wasn't much interest. Hopefully it continues to change and the law cracks down harder and harder on fraudsters. Nothing drives me crazy like fraudsters. Sometimes you wish you could reach through the screen and teach them a lesson!
