Identify Fraud Quickly

Businesses are challenged with detecting increasingly sophisticated fraud attempts. Growing reliance on online channels and 'instant credit approvals' to increase revenues presents greater opportunities for skilled fraudsters.

Equifax offers effective solutions to fight synthetic and true-name fraud, along with real-time detection of velocity and behavioral patterns that are indicative of suspicious activity.

Equifax's vast repository of industry-leading data helps provide deep insight around consumer identities. Our assets include credit, employment, income, demographic, telecom, utility, device ID and other differentiated data sources. We provide advanced analytics and technology innovations to improve fraud capture rates and dramatically decrease false positives.

Our fraud solutions help:

  • Reduce fraud charge-offs and increase activation rates
  • Improve the customer experience
  • Improve fraud capture rates for high-risk transactions
  • Reduce false positives


Here are some key features and benefits our fraud solutions deliver:

  • Identity Scanning- leverages more than a dozen up-to-date public and proprietary databases and returns warnings based on fraud victim alerts, hot addresses, and suspicious phone numbers.
  • Velocity Detection- provides all-purpose protection by detecting patterns across multiple institutions and industries that are indicative of fraudulent activity.
  • Device Risk Scoring- helps identify suspicious activity that is associated with the device the consumer is using.
  • SSN Screening- combats fraud by alerting when a social security number (SSN) is being used inappropriately and potentially by a different, illegitimate identity.
  • OFAC Screening- helps comply with Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) regulations
  • Identity Proofing - leverages Knowledge Based Authentication (KBA) that validates the customer is who they say they are—making it difficult for an imposter to gain access to your web-based applications.
