Identity Theft

Stop Identity Thieves at Account Opening

Identity theft, whether it’s via synthetic identity creation or true name fraud, has been growing at an exponential rate. Fraudsters are using partial or real identities to appear legitimate when opening new accounts to avoid detection by traditional fraud detection solutions. Using an unsupervised machine learning approach, DataVisor has the most advanced technologies to distinguish real or fake identities at the account registration time to prevent any downstream damage. Reduce chargebacks, uncover money laundering, stop check forgery, and more when you uncover identity theft at account opening time. DataVisor can catch the entire crime ring of accounts involved in a large scale, coordinated attack.

Why Unsupervised Machine Learning for Stopping Identity Thieves?

The wide availability of personal identifiable information makes identity theft and synthetic identity theft much more prevalent today. Synthetic identity theft creates an almost perfect crime as there are no specific consumer victims to complain about the fraud. Coupled with sophisticated mass registration techniques, these fake accounts appear legitimate and remain under the radar when reviewed one at a time in isolation. DataVisor’s unsupervised machine learning approach looks at all the accounts globally and finds highly correlated, suspicious clusters of accounts, detecting accounts as fraudulent even if their identities look legitimate.
