As organizations get better at fending off point-of-sale fraud tactics, fraudsters are focusing more of their activities on new account fraud, often with bogus identities. Synthetic identity fraud is built on the foundation of a fictitious identity, often created with a combination of real data and fabricated information. Fraudsters then attempt to gain credit with the fictitious identity in order to monetize it. These manufactured identities are used for short term gain and then abandoned. When this is the case, there is no one for the lender to contact in order to collect funds. This poses a problem for organizations as these misclassified non-payment matters get sent to collections, further wasting resources.
FraudIQ® Synthetic ID Alerts can help protect your business from losses associated with synthetic identity fraud while minimizing false positives. Delivered in batch or real-time, the alerts use patent-pending machine-learning algorithms to detect synthetic identity behaviors and patterns at various entry points.
- Reduce fraud charge-offs and other losses
- Evaluate various patterns with advanced matching logic, such as authorized user/credit abuse, ID discrepancies, and fraud/ID manipulations
