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
